The 2011 Kenya IGF is a follow up to the 2010 national IGF and the regional East Africa Internet Governance Forum 2010.

 Furthermore, Kenya will be hosting the 2011 global United Nations Internet Governance Forum (UN-IGF) the Kenya and EA IGF will support the goals of the IGF and the continued evolution of the open, multi-stakeholder internet.
