Enabling environment

The African ICT Consumers Network (RéCATIC) is an initiative run in Benin by the Benin Consumer Defence League. In 2008, the George Soros Foundation and the Government of Benin funded the creation of RéCATIC for consumer rights in telecommunications in Africa (SDGs 8, 11, 16, and 17). This network aims to create an interface between governments, regulators, operators and ICT service providers, as well as consumers, on concerns regarding the quality and safety of services, transparency in pricing, the handling of complaints, and the information and education of African consumers about ICT services.
