Resumen

Emerging challenges to farming drives farming systems to have three strategies; intensification options optimizing resources and technological innovations, firm diversification orchestrating interdependencies among sectoral boundaries, and transition to new system and trajectories. The intensification in the coffee system is the research supported innovation process to specialize in coffee using new varieties and practices while the second option is diversification to complementary enterprises (emphasis equal attention to coffee and dairy farming) to adapt climate and other challenges. The trajectory shift emphasis on how new sectoral systems (dairy sector being a community and private sector derived innovation) emerges, and what is the link with the previous sectoral system (coffee sector) in terms of impact pathway on the effective and efficient transformation of inputs into products and eventually result in impacts. In the multi-level perspective however, there is no simple cause effect relationship drives transitions rather systems change is enacted by various types of actors, such as producers, policy makers, researchers, and privates. This paper, therefore, presents (1) how (why) the transition from coffee to dairy based farming system in the coffee agroforestry systems of Murang?a County, central Kenya is taking place? (2) How the different actors in the innovation system of transition contribute to the learning and innovation process? And (3) what contributes the transition from intensified coffee based to dairy based farming system on household food security? Our data collection consists of three sources. Household survey (120) for household specific data, focus group discussions (9 FGDs) to characterize the transition and innovation process and stakeholders? interview (15 interviews) for understanding the contribution of stakeholders in the transition and innovation process.
