Universities should conduct information needs and information-seeking behaviour of counties. From these findings, they will be able to do need-specific research whose findings will provide targeted solutions.

Universities need to proactively share with counties the research and innovations they have already done. Some of this may be addressing problems counties are currently grappling with.

Universities can do this by creating an information hub where all information can be stored and utilized by various stakeholders

Universities can open up their data and research repositories to counties. There is a lot of research carried out by lecturers and students in these counties, universities should provide a platform for decision makers in the counties to access data for evidence-based decision-making

First and foremost, Counties need to see Universities as Advisory and Quality Control Institutions hence channel their information needs to the universities to be addressed appropriately. On the other hand, Universities have the capacity to create channels and platforms for the back and forth expression of interests and information demand.
