Policy work is now been addressed by the PIEPSAP Project. Various assessments of the national energy sectors with in member countries has identified the absence of national energy policy statements and guidelines, and that this is one of the major constraints to the effective planning and management of their national energy sectors. This project was initiated in 1993/94 and member countries are now at different levels of progress with the development and adoption of their energy sector policies. The project is to provide on-going, in-country technical assistance as required to those countries that have not yet adopted their national energy policy statements and also to those that require their current policies to be reviewed.
