At least 500 delegates are anticipated to attend the forum which focuses on investing in Nile cooperation for a 'Water Secure Future'. Technical Advisor in the Ministry of Environment in Rwanda, Ms Nyirakamana Jacqueline told a press conference Sunday, "the Sudan, South Sudan, Ethiopia and Rwanda have confirmed attendance.

More delegates are expected." There were no reports on whether Tanzanian delegates had also turned down the crucial forum that is being held in Rwanda for the second time in ten years.
