Utafiti Sera is a Swahili phrase for Research-Policy. Utafiti Sera is conceived as a multi-dimensional response to enhancing policy outcomes across Africa. Our unique and innovative approach bridges the research-evidence and policymaking process by providing safe spaces for policy dialogues among the stakeholders. Our safe spaces are important co-learning and sharing platforms, enhancing trust among actors and eliminating barriers to evidence use. We support, contribute and coordinate a vibrant network of researchers and policy actors who work together to ensure that appropriate and negotiated policy actions and uptake occur. We achieve this by: (1) Providing forums for stakeholders to engage in participatory and transdisciplinary research to co-produce context-specific and relevant knowledge; (2) Engaging diverse policy stakeholders in the process of our research projects form inception and design to implementation; (3) Being a one-stop repository for stakeholders to seek research-based evidence for policies; and (4) Facilitating shared platforms research findings dissemination to foster learning and decision-making in public policy in Africa.
As a working process, Utafiti Sera is organised into what we call, Utafiti Sera Houses. These houses are conceived across cross-cutting and multidimensional developmental pathways and are informed by rigorous research evidence generated from research work produced through PASGR strategic networks.
