2 November 2021 – IDinsight and The Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis (KIPPRA) announce today that they have signed an MOU to solidify their partnership in contributing to the achievement of Kenya’s national development goals through evidence-informed public policy. The MOU signing took place on October 15.

As part of this partnership, KIPPRA and IDinsight ​​will undertake joint research and evaluations in underserved areas of interest including public finance management and programs empowering women, girls, and persons with disabilities. The research generated through this partnership will inform government institutions and their development of national policies. Together KIPPRA and IDinsight will bring data-driven approaches including machine learning and rapid, rigorous surveys to inform the government’s Public Policy Making Process (PPMP). KIPPRA and IDinsight will jointly hold technical and policy workshops to disseminate research and evaluation findings as well as organize policy seminars and conferences. 

We look forward to this partnership with IDinsight and are excited for the opportunity to jointly conduct evaluations and research that will further inform policy decisions across the country. KIPPRA is committed to Kenya’s national development goals and will continue to provide relevant support to the country’s decision-makers.
