The Seed Camp

The Seed Camp was the founding workshop for the Nile Forum platform. We established the founding principles of the Nile Forum, its activities, its potential impact and opportunities.


We invited 30 participants representing NGOs, academia, researchers, communities, active citizens, network organizations, CSOs and individuals interested in trans-boundary collaboration in the region. These participants were mainly but not exclusively from the Nile basin countries.

The Seed Camp took place in Aswan/ Egypt from the 20th to the 26th of March 2016.
