Africa/Middle East: East Africa

Camp NARUC

Date: August 10-21, 2015
Location: East Lansing, Michigan

Supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), staff of the Burundian regulator attended a two-week regulatory introductory training program called Camp NARUC.

The Fundamentals Course (week 1) focused on the foundations and fundamentals of utility regulation. Core economic, legal, accounting, finance, and policy theories and concepts are introduced. The Intermediate Course (week 2) concentrated on dynamic structural and regulatory issues, including emerging methods, issues, and sector-specific market concerns.

As the Burundian regulator is still in its formative stage, the training program enabled the staff to gain a better understanding of the organizational structure of a regulator. Knowledge gained at the training also formed the basis of a capacity building plan for all staff.
