The joint forum on sugar and horticulture sectors on employment creation was organized by the Partnership for African Social Governance Research (PASGR) in collaboration with the Centre for African Bio-Entrepreneurship (CABE). This was the fourth forum after the launch of the Utafiti Sera forums on Sugar and Horticulture. These forums identified policy issues for promoting decent employment and inclusive growth in Kenya.
The main purpose of the fourth forum was to present the key policy issues in sugar and horticulture sectors and to use the evidence to engage policy
actors for policy uptake. These were the effect of sugar importation on production and wage employment in the sugar sector; and incentives on contract governance, productivity and markets for job creation in the horticulture sector. In this respect, Utafiti Sera engaged the ANC-NASA Technical Committee to consider policy issues of interest to their political party manifesto.
