Our Pillars

KICTANet’s organisational strategy that guides its operations

Policy Advocacy

We bring stakeholders together to discuss on the best policy alternatives and also monitor the progress of policy development processes.

Capacity building

To ensure continuity and diversity in the policy development, we bring in new voices in the different stakeholder backgrounds through training and events.


Our policy advocacy and capacity building are supported by evidence based research through an established working group on both current and emerging issues.

Stakeholder engagement

We facilitate ICT stakeholder engagement through collaborative initiatives the KICTANet’s interactive mailing list where multiple stakeholders engage regularly on ICT policy issues.
