NetTel@Africa (NetTel) is a transnational capacity development program focused on improving the policy and regulatory environment for the information communication technologies (ICT) and telecommunications (telecom) sectors. Originally, NetTel was developed as a programmatic response by USAID’s Leland Initiative to a request for human resource development by the Telecommunications Regulators Association of Southern Africa. NetTel is aligned with the USAID. During the development of the program, it became evident that an expansion of NetTel beyond the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region would greatly improve the quality of capacity development in formulating policies and regulation. Recently, NetTel has expanded to priority Western and Eastern African nations.
