Kenya ICT Action Network (KICTANet)

The Kenya ICT Action Network (KICTANet) is a multistakeholder platform for people and institutions interested in ICT policy and regulation. It was established in 2003 as part of APC's project on Catalysing Access to ICTs in Africa (CATIA). The network seeks to act as a catalyst for reform in the ICT sector in support of the national aim of ICT - enabling growth and development.

The philosophy behind KICTANet’s formation was based on the approach of encouraging synergies for ICT policy-related activities and initiatives. KICTANet provides mechanisms and a framework for continuing cooperation and collaboration among civil society, industry, the technical community, academia, media and government. As a result, the network has helped increase the legitimacy and support needed to enhance a working relationship between the government and other key stakeholders in ICT policy development processes since its founding.
