La covid-19 como una alerta para que el régimen de regulación de los servicios públicos se enfoque en la administración del riesgo y fomente la resiliencia

Covid-19 an Alarm for Utilities Regulation Regime to Focus On Risk Management and To Incentivize Resilience

Contenido principal del artículo

Juan Carlos Garay Forero


La propagación de la covid-19, desde su origen en Wuhan, China, una enfermedad de aparente origen zoonótico y las medidas sanitarias empleadas para su contención implicaron un evento con efectos nocivos para la economía y la capacidad productiva de la sociedad que, en un contexto en que es posible que ese tipo de disrupciones sea más frecuente, resaltan la necesidad de que el régimen regulatorio de los servicios públicos se esfuerce en fortalecer y aplicar las lecciones de la administración del riesgo y en incrementar la resiliencia de las empresas reguladas para evitar que el costo de las medidas para la continuidad del servicio sea asumido por los usuarios o los contribuyentes.
