Kenya: Contribution to the IGF Review

The Kenya ICT Action Network (KICTANet) initiated the regional East Africa Internet Governance Forum (EA-IGF) in 2008, in response to the lack of participation from East Africans in the global Internet governance processes.  The regional forum was preceded by national IGFs held in Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.  The second EA-IGF will be held in Nairobi from 7-9th September 2009.
