KIPPRA hosted the KIPPRA Day and Kenya @ 60 Celebrations on 24th November, 2023 at the Kenya School of Government in Nairobi. The theme of the celebration was Kenya @ 60: Accelerating the National Development Agenda trough Public Policy. The celebrations provided an opportunity for the participants to reflect on Kenya’s journey since independence, identifying the key milestones and drawing lessons from the challenges experienced. The forum also provided a platform to discuss the way forward in achieving the development agenda through evidence-based policy and steering a national renewal through economic renaissance.
The Chief Guest at the event was the Cabinet Secretary, National Treasury and Economic Planning, Prof. Njuguna Ndung’u, who emphasized the importance of implementing policy decisions that are responsive and evidence based. Prof. Ndung’u also launched 20 KIPPRA publications that are focused on the Bottom-up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA). The event brought together over 200 delegates drawn from the National Government, County Governments, SAGAs, private sector and players in the climate change action space.
