Trinidad & Tobago: PURC Briefing

October 5, 2010

PURC Director of Water Studies Sandy Berg met with infrastructure professionals from the Regulated Industries Commission (RIC) of Trinidad and Tobago where he discussed the Caribbean Water and Wastewater Association Pre-Conference activities in Grenada, including an overview of the Caribbean component of the Global Water Operators Partnerships Alliance initiative in the Caribbean (CariWOP).

The proposal aims to strengthen institutional capabilities in monitoring sector performance; to promote improved operating performance and public policies; to collect and update information regarding sector challenges; to support Performance Improvement Plans by utilities in the region (drawing upon benchmarking information); and to provide training that supports continuing professional development (and increased public awareness of the sector). In addition, RIC professionals shared their perspectives on regulatory issues in the region, including possible topics for future PURC Advanced Courses.
