Shared by 11 countries with a combined population of over 400 million, the River Nile exemplifies both the opportunities and challenges of managing a resource that sustains the livelihoods of more than 230 million people who live within its basin.

But with the aid of the Nile Basin Decision Support System (NB DSS), Member States have a set of analytical and scenario evaluation tools to ensure efficient management and optimal use of the basin’s shared water resources.

As the Nile Basin Initiative’s flagship innovation in the field of water resources planning, the NB DSS is playing an instrumental role in monitoring and assessing the water and related natural resources of the basin.
