The approach

Comprehensive training

Each iPRIS round starts with a 2.5-week training program in Europe for NRA representatives. The training covers the Joint European Offer, gender equality and inclusion, project management, and site visits to relevant organisations.

Regional Support

A regional support team, with representatives from African RROs, collaborates with participants to support the implementation of their strategic change initiatives, thus promoting regional harmonisation.

Follow-up meeting in Africa

A week-long meeting is held in Africa four months after the European training to review progress, present results, and encourage discussions.

Assessment and evaluation

One year after the start of a round, the implementation of the change initiatives of the participating NRAs is assessed, fostering continuous improvement.

Stakeholders

iPRIS is implemented by SPIDER ( the Swedish Program for ICT in Developing Regions), the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority (PTS), and the Luxembourg Regulatory Institute (ILR).

In collaboration with the African Regional Regulatory Organisations, the implementers support the participating National Regulatory Authorities to achieve their strategic change initiatives.

One-on-One with NRAs (Interview series)

ICT is a key driver of development and catalyst of economic growth across Africa. National regulators are responsible for facilitating the development of the information and communications (ICT) sector at a country level.

National regulatory authorities (NRAs) representing Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Sudan and Zambia took part in a 2.5-week training programme in Stockholm, Sweden, in November 2023.
In this interview series, representatives from the participating NRAs shed light on their national context and how they are advancing the ICT sector in their respective countries.
