About AFUR

Infrastructure forms the backbone of Africa’s economies. Without adequate energy, communications, transport, and water and sanitation services, Africa’s economies will not achieve their growth potential or be able to meet the needs of their citizens.
The large, network infrastructure industries are undergoing fundamental reform. These reforms need to be managed and regulated in such a way that Africa’s development imperatives are met.

AFUR is regarded as a key building block in the efforts of the African Union and its socio-economic programme, the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) in the integration and rebirth of Africa.

Knowledge Hub

Dive into a world of comprehensive insights and resources with AFUR’s Knowledge Hub, a dedicated space designed to enrich your understanding of utility regulation across Africa.

Across different media, we focus on pivotal sectors including energy, telecommunications, transport, and water & sanitation. As a cornerstone in the African Union’s socio-economic initiatives and the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD), AFUR plays a crucial role in the integration and revitalization of the continent.
