Funded by a World Bank-managed multi-donor Trust Fund, the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) was founded with the goal of developing the Nile River Basin in a cooperative manner in order to ensure its resources are developed and shared and that its substantial socio-economic benefits promote regional peace and security. The NBI is currently in the process of establishing a Nile Basin Decision Support System (NB-DSS) to support water resources planning and investment decisions in the Nile Basin, especially those with cross-border or basin level ramifications. The NB-DSS will assist in the evaluation of alternative development paths and the identification of joint investment projects at sub-regional and regional level.
Key members of Aurecon’s team have extensive experience related to operational management, integrated water resource management and environmental flow assessments in shared river systems in Africa, including Limpopo, the Incomati-Maputo, Orange-Senqu, Okavango and Zambezi River Basins. For this project, Aurecon’s Cape Town Office will lead a multi-disciplinary team of experts from South Africa and Europe to provide the necessary experience, skills and expertise to successfully complete the project. Aurecon will be intricately involved with all aspects of the project including hydrological and system analyses, sophisticated scenario analysis, project management and capacity building. The project involves extensive interaction with all of the Nile riparian countries, including Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda, as well as with numerous international firms involved with parallel NBI studies.
The anticipated scale of future investments in water resource development projects in the Nile Basin is immense. Aurecon is very excited to support not only the NBI, but also the key decision makers in all of the riparian countries.
