The Kenya Internet Governance Forum (KIGF), an annual meeting that brings together various stakeholder groups to dialogue on ICT and Internet policy, is set to be held on July 6, 2017 in Nairobi, Kenya.
While the discussions give soft policy outcomes, KIGF is a knowledge sharing platform that informs and inspires policy actors in both the public and private sectors.
The national forum also feeds into the regional and global IGFs through a chain of reporting and representation to the regional and global IGFs to ensure a bottom up Internet policy development processes and a strong link between global internet policies and the national one.
The Kenya IGF will be hosted by KICTANet with support from other partner organisations.
