Second training session was dedicated to “Drafting Regulations”

ALSF and RELOP hosted their second joint legal webinar, this time dedicated to “Drafting Regulations”. The training, which was held on December 12, 2023 and attended by more than 40 participants, provided an in-depth analysis of relevant aspects related to the design of normative acts.

The event, conducted virtually in Portuguese, was moderated by Indira Gomes of the ALSF.

The session was divided into three themes, where participants were guided through a comprehensive analysis of the topic. The discussion involved critical aspects such as legal empowerment, systematization, identification of legal ability, impact assessment, and terms and consultation deadline with interested parties. Evandro Pereira Caldas from Brazil’s National Oil, Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANP), Marisa Vaz Cunha and José Francisco Veiga from Portugal’s Energy Services Regulatory Authority (ERSE), and Hermenegildo Pereira from the Public Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau all contributed to the discussion.

We reaffirm our continued commitment to promoting knowledge exchange among Portuguese speakers. The ALSF-RELOP webinar series will continue to be exclusively in Portuguese, and stands out as a valuable platform for enriching knowledge in the legal and energy sectors in Lusophone Africa. We are grateful to all of the speakers and attendees for making this session a success. We hope that these conversations will foster a positive dialogue in advance of our upcoming sessions, strengthening regional energy sector regulation.
