The Kenya Internet Governance Forum (KIGF) is an annual meeting that brings
together various stakeholder groups to dialogue on ICT and Internet Policy.
The forum brings together stakeholders from government, private sector,
technical community, academia and civil society to discuss ICT and Internet
policy issues on an equal footing through an open and inclusive process.
While the discussions give soft policy outcomes , the forum is a knowledge
sharing platform that informs and inspires actors in the Public and Private
Sectors. The national forum feeds into the regional and global fora through
a chain of reporting and representation to the regional and global IGFs to
ensure a bottom up Internet policy development process and a strong link
between global internet policies and the national one.
