One of the primary mandates of the Institute of Economic Affairs is to undertake quality and evidence based research that addresses the policy gaps facing the country and use it for public education and to influence policy making. We also strive to package and disseminate our research outputs in formats that can be easily consumed by our target audiences for policy change.
The Institute of Economic Affairs staff participated in a half day training session on impact evaluation facilitated by two PhD students (Michael Mbate and Samuel Muhula) from the London School of Economics and Political Science and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology respectively. The training was held on Wednesday August 22 2018 at the IEA Boardroom.
The overarching goal of the training was to inculcate and facilitate a culture of evidence use in policy formulation and implementation, and how to design research proposals for impact.
