Coordination and Cooperation with the NBI Partners

Dr. Stephen Ngigi – the agricultural water use expert – represented the project at the second steering committee meeting of the NBI Efficient Water Use for Agricultural Production (EWUAP) project. The meeting was held in Nairobi, Kenya, on 18 – 19 January 2007 and was attended by some 20 participants from all Nile countries.

As both projects are active in the broad field of agriculture, FAO Nile and EWUAP are coordinating closely to capture synergies. While FAO Nile is making a thorough assessment of the linkage between water and agriculture at Nile Basin scale, EWUAP is focused on piloting best practices to increase water productivity at field level. The two projects, therefore, are complementary and will build on each other’s achievements and experience.

Collaborative linkages have been initiated, in particular in the area of training. Furthermore, a number of EWUAP steering committee members have been invited to participate in development exercise of scenarios of agricultural demand in the Nile Basin for 2030.
