The African Forum for Utility Regulators (AFUR) is an initiative established on the basis of
Clause 110 of the Framework Document of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD AUDA). AFUR aims to establish and foster co-operation amongst utility regulators on the African continent in support of Africa’s growth and socio-economic development. AFUR’s primary focus is on issues pertaining to the regulation of infrastructure (energy, communications, water and sanitation as well as transport sectors).
Another principal objective of AFUR is to fast-track the development of a standardised effective utility regulatory framework in Africa as this will facilitate infrastructure development and regional integration of the continent. AFUR pursues its mission by facilitating cooperation and information-sharing amongst its members, as well as through the development of regulatory capacity building initiatives.
