Co-producing knowledge with Nairobi city stakeholders

Nov 17, 2022

Researchers from ACRC’s structural transformation and health, wellbeing and nutrition domain teams in Nairobi engaged key city stakeholders in a full-day workshop, to facilitate the co-production of knowledge, discuss and validate emerging research findings, and drive forward progress on priority complex problems (PCPs).

The stakeholders provided valuable insights around framing emerging PCPs within prevailing county and national government priorities, in order to gain political buy-in. The meeting was also instrumental in identifying crucial opportunities for collaboration, where evidence from ACRC research can be applied to rationalise for change in policy, programme and practice within related areas in the city.

This recap video from Know Your City TV – SDI’s youth collective – provides a summary of the day’s discussions, with insights from Rosebella Apollo, ACRC’s research uptake officer; Susan Kimani from the Nairobi City County’s youth affairs department; and Veronica Mwangi, an ACRC researcher from the health, wellbeing and nutrition domain.
