The Government of South Africa has identified agriculture as one of the key sectors that could contribute to greening the economy due to its backward and forward linkages with job generation, food security, foreign export earnings and raw material production, making the sector an important engine for the growth of the rest of the economy. At the same time, this potential is significantly threatened by climate change . With more than 70 percent of its croplands relying primarily on rainfall for farming, existing cropping and livestock systems will be directly affected by expected climate induced changes in precipitation and temperature patterns. The agricultural sector is therefore one of the focal sectors of South Africas National Climate Change Adaptation Strategy (NCCAS) that was promulgated in 2020 and of the countrys updated Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris Agreement . The adoption of climate smart agriculture technologies provides opportunities for sustainable intensification consistent with food security and development goals, and climate change adaptation and mitigation needs.

The proposed Laikipia Integrated Feedlot Scheme (LIFS)initiative seeks to improve the quantity and quality of livestock commodities produced in the county by the key value chain actors. More specifically, the LIFS project focuses on improved productivity across the red meat value chain from livestock production to slaughter, processing and access to markets.
The existing value chain in the county is however fragmented and characterized by limited coordination between the value chain activities and players, and disease control thus unable to compete directly in the international market with producers like Australia. For the Scheme to be bankable, preliminary findings inform of the need to focus on a differentiated product and targeting of high-value local and international markets. This assignment, therefore, seeks to engage an experienced consultant firm to develop a brand design and marketing strategy for export promotion of the products that will be produced in the LIFS value chain.
