  • 21. Conclusion • The Nile Basin is complex river basin and highly variable in terms of water availability, development, use and management t • There is no comprehensive and adequate information system y • There are quite a lot of actors in the Basin but not well networked and interacting • The Nile Basin still possesses high potential for development, but require breakthrough in win-win cooperation • O t t of Nile BFP could significantly contribute t Outputs f Nil ld i ifi tl t ib t to establishing a consorted research efforts and knowledge base linking directly to development 02/02/2008, Cali Supported by: CPWF
