As policymakers and regulators in the ICT sector in the SADC region, we have come to realisation that good policy and
regulation can only be developed if it is based on relevant evidence. Regulation during the era in which there is robust
technological developments is quite challenging. It is critical that as Government advisers, we need to think through and
understand the consequences of possible and actual government interventions in the ICT Sector. It is being acknowledged
therefore that Impact Assessment (IA) is an effective tool for modern, evidence based policy making that facilitates for
structured framework for handling policy challenges. It is also being advised that these IA should be embedded in all our
policy and regulation making processes.

Local regulatory authority, POTRAZ, is hosting the event. You can find the programmer for the workshop here.

The workshop will be followed by the CRASA 13th annual general meeting to be held at the same venue from 25 to 26 March 2010.
