The African Forum for Utility Regulators (AFUR) focuses on issues related to the regulation of energy, telecommunications, transport, and water and sanitation industries, with a particular emphasis on issues that are common across sectors.
The objectives of AFUR could be summarized as supporting the development of effective utility regulation in Africa through facilitating the harmonization of regulatory policies, information exchange and experience lessons among regulators, and capacity building in support of the socio-economic development of the continent.
AFUR’s vision and objectives are derived from Clause 110 of the NEPAD Framework Document, which recognizes the establishment of the African Forum for Utility Regulation and regional regulatory associations.
