The year 2019 is a special one for the Nile Basin Initiative. It started off with launching 2019 'The Year of the Nile Basin' by the Chairman of the Nile Council of Ministers, in January. This was followed by celebrations of NBI's 20th anniversary in February. Find out more about these two key activities, in this March 2019 issue of the Nile News. You will also find a lot more interesting stories about other key activities carried out during the first quarter. We look forward to hearing from you on these and other issues related to the Nile Basin and Nile cooperation.
