On the 13th of September 2019 KIPPRA, in conjunction with its stakeholders, held a roundtable meeting on the KIPPRA Public Policy Repository at the Fairview Hotel Nairobi. The purpose of the meeting was to highlight the scope of the PPR, benefits of it, get recommendations from the stakeholders and address any legal issues and linkages.

The goal of the PPR is to provide an open access platform to collect, store, index and disseminate policy-related national and county government publications to both internal and external customers. Thus, KIPPRA seeks to create and maintain a digital public policy repository that reflects its mission and values.

The PPR will cover the National and County government policy documents as well as selected documents from KIPPRA research publications, Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDA), Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), institutions of higher learning and other links to selected repositories.
