On December 1, 2016, IPA Kenya and the Vision 2030 Secretariat hosted a Policy Forum at the Windsor Hotel and Golf Club in Nairobi, Kenya. The theme of the forum was “Better Evidence, Better Policies, Better Lives: 10 Years of Research in the Agricultural Sector.” The forum brought together 60 researchers, policymakers, and implementing partners. This event was one of several policy engagements that IPA Kenya and the Vision 2030 Secretariat have held over the years, following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the two organizations.
The forum highlighted research findings of recently completed studies in various sectors, including agricultural technology adoption, health, nutrition, food safety, and financial services. Researchers shared research findings with policymakers and discussed the best approaches for translating evidence into sustainable and well-informed policies and ultimately increasing wealth in Kenya.
