NILE BASIN DEVELOPMENT FORUM 2021
he 6th in its series, NBDF 2021 is dedicated to the theme: Rethinking Regional Investments in the Nile Basin: Water | Food | Energy | Environment | Climate. The theme derive, from the NBI Strategy 2017-2027, focusing on consolidating the gains and delivering benefits of Nile cooperation.
The theme and its five strategic angles, are very timely taking into account that the Nile riparians, building on the work of NBI over the past two decades, are moving towards a new approach to regional/basin planning and investment agenda. The goal is to enhance transformative processes and projects that will contribute to NBI’s shared vision: to promote socio-economic benefits for the people and countries of the Nile Basin.
The Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) Secretariat is very pleased to announce that preparations for the Nile Basin Development Forum (NBDF) 2021 are underway. The 6th in its series, the Forum will take place in Addis Ababa in 2021. Ethiopia will be hosting this high level regional event for the second time, having hosted the inaugural Forum in 2006.
Since the first Forum held in 2006, the NBDF has since become one of the largest gatherings in the Nile Basin region, for science-policy dialogue. Its aim is to foster cooperation and create a common understanding and appreciation among a wide range of stakeholders on issues and challenges of the Nile Basin.
