Send a Cow (SAC) is a nongovernmental organization (NGO) that has been working in Kenya since 1996. It focuses on groups of smallholder farmers, providing them with training in sustainable agriculture and improved animal management. SAC is mostly active in western Kenya, one of the country's most populated and poorest region. The population density for this region ranges from 337 to 1,300 inhabitants per km² with an average density of 590 people per km2 (Kenya Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, 2001; KNBS, 2010).

Food security entails having sufficient, safe, and nutritious food to meet dietary needs. The need to optimise nitrogen (N) use for nutrition security while minimising environmental risks in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is overdue. Challenges related to managing N use in SSA can be associated with both insufficient use and excessive loss, and thus the continent must address the ‘too little’ and ‘too much’ paradox. Too little N is used in food production (80% of countries have N deficiencies), which has led to chronic food insecurity and malnutrition.

The climate-smart agriculture (CSA) concept reflects an
ambition to further integrate agricultural development and
climate responsiveness. CSA aims to achieve food security
and broader development goals under a changing climate
and increasing food demand. CSA initiatives sustainably
increase productivity, enhance resilience, and minimize
greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions. Increased planning is
vital in order to address tradeoffs and synergies between
the three pillars: productivity, adaptation, and mitigation
