Kenya is a good performer (“B”) under the VACI. Although the country has low levels of animal production and consumption, there is significant room for improvement in its animal protection laws and enforcement.
Kenya is rated as a marginal performer (“D”) under the Animal Protection Index (API), and its farmed animal protection legislation achieved a very poor performance (“F”) rating under the same index. This is due to significant gaps in its farmed animal protection laws and inadequate law enforcement mechanisms. Learn more about the quality of Kenya’s legislative protections on the API here.
