Nile Basin Initiative Secretariat

The Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) is an intergovernmental partnership of 10 Nile Basin countries, namely Burundi, DR Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, The Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda. Eritrea participates as an observer. For the first time in the Basin's history, an all-inclusive basin-wide institution was established, on 22nd February, 1999, to provide a forum for consultation and coordination among the Basin States for the sustainable management and development of the shared Nile Basin water and related resources for win-win benefits.

Are you using the most current critical knowledge and information on the Nile Basin water and related resources to make better decisions? NBI has generated transparent, unbiased and credible knowledge and information, which is available to all and increasingly shared through web based platforms namely; the Nile Information System, virtual libraries, website, Nile Basin Decision Support (NB-DSS) Community Portal, Nile Basin Water Resources Atlas, State of the Nile River Basin Report 2012, NBI eLearning platforms as well as ENTRO’s knowledge portal.
