Tegemeo facilitates Policy Formulation Workshop in Egerton University, Njoro Campus

Tegemeo Institute facilitated a half-day seminar on policy formulation at the Egerton University main campus, for academic staff members from various departments. About twenty five senior academic staff members participated in the seminar. The training focused on communication of research findings to policy makers through the use of policy briefs.

The seminar was organized by the Division of Research and Extension, which has over the years overseen much research work by the faculty. The University seeks to enhance its outreach especially in the engagement with county governments, through influencing policy decisions backed by evidence. The participants lauded the seminar as timely and insightful, noting that it will contribute towards achieving this objective.

The Institute will conduct similar seminars at the University from time to time.
