Data Compilation and Pilot Application of the Nile Basin Decision Support System (NB-DSS): Work Package 2: Stage 2 Synthesis Report: Integrated Nile Basin

This report provides a synthesis of the pilot application of the NB-DSS to the Integrated Nile Basin, i.e the whole of the Nile Basin and addresses the evaluation of basin-wide impacts associated with development and/or management options.The overarching purpose of the NB-DSS is to support water resources planning and investment decisions in the Nile Basin, especially those with trans-boundary or basin level ramifications. It aims to provide a framework for sharing knowledge and understanding river system behaviour as well as for designing and evaluating alternative development scenarios, investment projects and management strategies.
