Energy theft and vandalism on utility infrastructure are more common than most think. Both vices cost consumers billions of dollars every year the world over. It is therefore a strategic imperative that organizations establish revenue protection programs as well as measures to curb vandalism. This workshop is aimed at sensitizing all relevant personnel on best practices in revenue protection management as well as infrastructure theft and vandalism prevention with the view to
prevent loss of revenue, lives and property.

This ‘how-to’ regional workshop for Africa provides tools to identify customer fraud and billing errors applicable to both large and small utilities as well as modern-day strategies to fight and protect utility infrastructure against theft and vandalism.

The workshop focuses on minimizing revenue losses in Utilities by providing solutions against pilfering, theft, fraud, misallocation and misappropriation of revenue as well as the education of the role players to implement effective counter-measures.
