The Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis (KIPPRA) was among exhibitors at the Agricultural Society of Kenya Kisumu Regional show that took place from July 28, 2015 to August 2, 2015.
The Knowledge Management and Communications Division spearheaded the institute’s participation at the show whose theme was “Enhancing technology in agriculture and industry for food security and national growth”. 
Under the Ministry of Devolution and Planning umbrella, the institute got an opportunity to showcase its research outputs and interact with the public on public policy issues.
The show was officially opened by the Principal Secretary, State Department of Livestock Prof. Fred Segor. Other guests who visited the KIPPRA stand included the NGO Coordination Board Acting Chief Executive Officer Rebecca Ombete, Kenya School of Government (KSG) Director Academic Affairs Mrs. Leah Munyao, and Anti-Female Genital Mutilation Board Acting CEO Jane Mwereru among others.
The visitors who visited the Institute’s stand made recommendations, suggestions and appeals most of which are detailed in the visitors book (to be forwarded to concerned divisions).  
The Anti-FGM Board, for instance, requested KIPPRA to include FGM issues in its surveys to help reduce the vice in Kenya. Researchers running a project in one of the local universities further suggested that KIPPRA should consider conducting a research on the elderly in Kenya because so far, no data is in place.
KIPPRA’s stand also attracted academicians, university and high school students, researchers and many other curious visitors who wanted to know what the institute was all about.
 Apart from getting a detailed explanation on KIPPRA’s vision , mission and its core mandate, most of the visitors to the stand were given ‘KIPPRA in Brief’ to enable them learn more about the institute. Some visitors wanted to know why KIPPRA was based in Nairobi yet the policy issues researched on affected the entire country.  The KIPPRA staff at the stand took time to explain how KIPPRA undertakes its research; that researchers collect data from all parts of the country, depending on the study.
Also, given that it was an agricultural show, many of the visitors expected to see publications on farming in general such as livestock breeding and fish farming.
The KIPPRA team at the show took advantage of the presence of local and public universities’ constituent colleges at the show to disseminate policy papers and other research materials that would on average not reach such institutions, as they are usually sent to the main campuses. This effort was much appreciated with some of the university students hurrying to our stand to get materials for their personal reading and research.
