Abstract
An important first step in addressing the research and development needs of smallholder dairy farmers in Kenya is to accurately diagnose the existing and future constraints and opportunities facing them. These may occur at a number of levels: the dairy animals themselves, agro-ecology of the area, farm practices, household resources, level and type of services available, infrastructure, and other policy or macro-environment factors. To carry out this broad and multi-level diagnosis, a stratified random survey of households was conducted in what may be termed the Greater Nairobi milk shed, the target area for the Smallholder Dairy (R&D) Project's first phase. This study falls within the characterisation phase of the conceptual frarm ework for dairy system research developed by ILRI (Rey et ai, 1993).
