Today, the Principal Secretary State Department for Cooperatives, Mr Patrick Kilemi, attended a Cooperative Public Policy Making Process (PPMP) Learning Forum at Strathmore University
The event theme is ” Policy to Action.”
Global communities have been implementing the Cooperatives Leadership Engagement Advocacy and Research (CLEAR) program (2018-2023) funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) which in turn has provided technical assistance to the National Cooperative Policy Implementation Task Force to develop and popularize the National Cooperative Bill.
