An important component of the research process is to disseminate information so that it may be critiqued and eventually utilized, either to stimulate further research or to make policy recommendations. A conference on the challenges of urbanization to HEIs was organized for this purpose.
Discussion Paper Circulation
The circulation of research output helps researchers gain insights from the comments of other researchers interested in the topic. This helps improve the quality of research so the output may eventually be published in recognized journals. With greater research output being published, it is expected that researchers gain confidence in their abilities.
Depending on the results of research activities, there may be a need to promote proposed reforms. Advocacy programs may include preparation and distribution of pamphlets as well as personal appearance campaigns.
