As part of this programme, the Seureca-Nodalis consortium is working on the improvement of the legal framework and stakeholders’ capacity building, with a focus on sector regulation. Nodalis carried out an assessment of the monitoring and regulating mechanisms dedicated to the compliance of electricity distribution operators – the national utility SENELEC and private rural electrification operators – with the service quality commitments set out in their contracts and in the law and regulations.
