Second Experts Meeting on Future Demand for Agricultural Produce in the Nile Basin

A second expert meeting is scheduled for 19–20 February 2007 in Entebbe, Uganda, to develop scenarios for demand for agricultural produce in the Nile Basin for 2030.

The event is a direct follow-up to the Cairo meeting in November 2006. Since then, the project office has developed detailed scenario logics based on the GOVERNANCE - TRADE scenario framework. Agricultural trade rules have been examined and the implications for the Nile Basin of different trade regimes have been investigated. The project office also prepared detailed scenario logics for bio-fuels.

The aim of the expert meeting is to validate and deepen the scenario logics, and to test the validity of a number of critical assumptions.

The event is facilitated by Dr. Peter Schütte, professor of Strategic Management at Nyenrode University, the Netherlands. Participants include resource persons from FAO, key stakeholders, and selected experts from the region.
