The Nile Basin Society had succeeded in obtaining crucial files about the NBD from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), only after inacting the "Access to Information Law". These files include the Evaluation Report (and its annex 5) and the Audit report.
The above documents raise the question why the Department for International Development (DFID) of the UK is funding the same people with the same administrative structure (IUCN-East Africa)? The NBS had exposed the falacies of the NBD and we shall continue to do so, in spite of all reactions/retaliations. We aim at real involvement of true NGOs in the Nile Basin Initiative that is driven by the NGOs and not by the NBI donors/countries. Real involvement that include participation from project planning to project evaluation/monitoring and not just as 'implementers.
