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.
Using the Information Hub enables you to:
- Enhance understanding of the Nile Basin water and related resources.
- Keep your information current and accurate.
- Strengthen dialogue on the Nile cooperation at National, Sub-regional and Regional levels.
- Access reliable data for example on evapotranspiration in the Nile Basin.
- Share experience in integrated water resources management in the Nile Basin.
Nile Information System
The Nile Information System is a web based state of the art tool that supports the systematic storage, organization, retrieval and dissemination of relevant NBI generated technical reports such as policies, strategies and guidelines.
The Library -both physical and online- offers various knowledge services including access to scientific publications on a wide range of cross cutting subjects, journal articles (in partnership with the University of Bergen) as well as digitization facility.
Nile Basin DSS Community Portal
The Nile Basin Decision Support System help desk and user community portal is designed to support implementation of the Nile basin Decision Support System in the Nile Basin countries. The portal provides a help desk component with a ticketing system through which user DSS experts seek for assistance that is related to DSS use from the secretariat. The portal provides a forum for the DSS user community to come together and exchange experiences on DSS usage in the countries
The e-learning platform is partly a replacement of the traditional face-to-face training that requires considerable resources. This self-paced training enables the capacity development programs to be effectively and timely executed. The courses are administered, managed and moderated by NBI.
Water Resources Atlas
The Nile Basin Water Resources Atlas is a knowledge tool developed by NBI.It is is divided into seven chapters presenting the physiography of the Basin, socio economic profiles of Nile Basin countries, water availability in terms of climate and hydrology as well as water demand and use infrastructure.
State of the River Nile Basin 2012
The State of the River Nile Basin 2012 is the first in a series of reports that will be produced every three years, The reports will provide accurate, reliable, and up-to-date information on the river and its tributaries, along with objective analyses and insights into the biophysical and ecological settings, and the social, cultural, and economic conditions within the basin.
