In April 2015, the Nile Voices take the reader to NBD’s presence at the 7th World Water Forum in South Korea contributing to different panel sessions on the roles of Civil Society Organizations, on issues of water resources management and stakeholder/community inclusivity in development agendas of the Nile Basin.

In the last month of the quarter, NBD was active in events including the 23rd Nile Council of Ministers (NILE-COM) meeting held in Dodoma on 4th June 2015, a meeting that had brought together Ministers in charge of water resources, development partners; NBI and NBD representatives. At the same venue and date, NBD’s voice was heard as it awarded the 1st runner up in Radio media from Burundi’s Private Radio NDERA AGAKURA.
