African Forum for Utility Regulation (AFUR)
MIRA runs courses in association with AFUR, which aims to support the development of effective utility regulation throughout Africa.  The Forum was established in September 2000 to facilitate the exchange of information and lessons of experience between African regulators, and to support capacity building efforts in the region.

Regional Electricity Regulators Association (RERA)
MIRA also runs courses in association with RERA, which was established in 2000 as well, to serve as a forum to coordinate and normalise the regulatory regimes in the SADC region. Such efforts are critical, particularly with the increasing amount of cross-board electricity trade.
