On 19 December 2011, the Nile Basin Development Challenge hosts the 2nd ‘National Platform meeting on land and water management in Ethiopia.’

The national platform intends to link local experiences with national planning, and open opportunities to engage with policy makers. While the National Platform meetings are expected to take place twice a year, we envision that the platform leads the establishment of thematic working groups with several activities throughout the year. During the 2nd national platform meeting, we will introduce the objectives, functions and structure of the platform and discuss priority areas/themes and approaches to address them.

The first platform meeting was held on 8 April, 2011 – read a news item; download the meeting report.
