The Kenya Internet Governance Forum (KIGF) is an open and inclusive multistakeholder forum that annually brings together over 250 industry stakeholders representing government, the private sector, civil society, the technical and academic community, and the public to discuss Internet Governance.
KICTANet has convened the Kenya IGF every successive year since 2008 in partnership with industry stakeholders, and this year commemorates the 17th Edition. The outcomes of the Kenya IGF will feed into the African IGF and Global IGF later this year. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect work all over the World and in the country. However, with the lifting of sanctions, we intend to hold the planned annual activities physically but also offer a virtual option to attend. Alongside the national IGF, a youth IGF shall be convened a day before the event to bring in voices of young Kenyans to the national discussions.
