Nile Basin Initiative has assisted Member States to prepare more than 30 investment projects of regional significance worth more than USD 6 billion, benefiting Nile Basin citizens in terms of food, energy and water security. The projects are environmental friendly, economically viable and socially acceptable. These projects are an outcome of enhanced cooperation and are shared and implemented by the Member States.

The trans-boundary perspectives that ensure equity among all affected countries and the focus on long-term sustainability makes the projects unique. Because they are trans-boundary in nature, these projects are characterized by a low ratio of preparation cost to investment cost; they have continuously posted a ratio of 1:10 (about USD1 leveraging investment worth USD 10). Mobilizing resources for their implementation is also much easier compared to unilateral efforts, as the voice of multi-country resource mobilization effort is stronger than that for a single country.
