Executive Summary - This report is part of the Nauru Energy Road Map (NERM) review assignment commissioned by the UNDP. The purpose of this Legislative Gap Analysis report is to:
Drafting new legislation is a time-consuming process and enforcement requires various resources. Many of the Activities in the updated NERM 2018 to 2020 can proceed without new primary or subsidiary legislation. However, there are significant gaps in the legislative framework for the energy sector in Nauru and this review has sought to list its recommendations in two categories, priority areas and long-term approaches.
Recommended priority areas
These recommendations relate to Activities in the updated NERM 2018 to 2020.
Recommended long-term approaches
These recommendations relate to further legislative work that the Government of Nauru (GoN) may need to consider once key aspects of the NERM Activities are implemented.
The final recommendation relates to NUC’s website not being available for the duration of this assignment and CIE’s preference to not have a website.
