Partnership for African Social and Governance Research

For The Utafiti Sera Program To Connect Researchers And Policy Actors In East Africa

The Partnership for African Social and Governance Research (PASGR) is an independent, nonpartisan pan-African not-for-profit organization. Currently engaged in more than 25 African countries, PASGR’s mission is to advance research excellence for governance and public policy in Africa. This grant will support PASGR’s Utafiti Sera program, which creates and supports research-to-policy communities to promote and support evidence-informed policy decision making. These Utafiti Sera communities bring together scholars, government officials, and civil society leaders working in specific sectors in Kenya and Rwanda to collaboratively prioritize policy questions, identify and fill research gaps to respond to these questions, and draw on research findings to inform policymaking. The Utafiti Sera approach prioritizes strengthening a culture and practice of evidence use among government partners in these countries and sharing learning about this with the broader evidence-informed policymaking field.
