The Kenya Internet Governance Forum has played a pivotal role in enhancing public participation in public policy development in Kenya. The forum has not only introduced new forms of ensuring public participation such as remote participation with the support of International organizations such as the Internet Society and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and numbers which have equally been embraced by the government, private sector, technical community academia and media, it has also built the capacity of many actors from diverse areas in the private sector, civil society, academia and the media on how to engage with other stakeholders in public policy development processes though a multi stakeholder approach.
