The Millennium Challenge Coordinating Unit (MCCU) in Sierra Leone wanted to support the Electricity and Water Regulatory Commission (EWRC) to develop its regulatory capacity. To support this work, MCCU wanted to hire a remote advisor to build EWRC's capacity and advise on regulatory processes.
DHInfrastructure supported EWRC in implementing electricity sector regulations and codes approved by Parliament. They also helped draft additional priority regulations and codes and held workshops and training sessions for EWRC staff on regulatory topics. They worked with EWRC's Director General to identify needs for supplemental technical assistance in areas such as transparency and circulation of information, review of power purchase agreements, monitoring, and relations with stakeholders.
