The 7th Nile Basin Development Forum will be held from September 18 to October 18, 2023 in Munyonyo, Uganda. This year’s theme is “Deepening Nile Cooperation: Accelerating the Achievement of SDGs in a Changing Climate”.
The Nile Basin Development Forum (NBDF) is a high- level regional event convened every three years by the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) in collaboration with its Member States and in partnership with development partners. The event is a science-policy-practice dialogue that provides an opportunity for constructive reflection on contemporary information, knowledge and best practices as well as building partnerships among professionals, in transboundary water resources management and development.
Many presentations will be held in the form of webinars allowing online participation. You can view the program and register for free here: https://www.eventleaf.com/nbdf
