KICTANet has continued to convene the KIGF over the years and in line with the tradition, it organized the 2020 annual forum. In collaboration with Communications Authority (CA), Facebook, Safaricom, KENIC, Association of Progressive Communications (APC), and Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC), hosted the Kenya Internet Governance Forum (KIGF) on October 29th, 2020. The forum themed ‘Internet for Human Resilience and Solidarity’ was hosted virtually with CIO East Africa providing the online platform, and attracted over 300 participants from the region. The event was preceded by a three-day fifth edition of the Kenya School of Internet Governance Forum (KeSIG), a flagship program for KICTANet which aims to bring in new voices into ICT policymaking. It also encourages those whose work has been disrupted by the internet to understand and contribute to internet policy-making processes.   In line with this tradition, and with the challenge presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 event was held online.
