A Long River Journey
20 Years of Cooperation under the NBI
Looking back over 20 years, this paper identifies successes and challenges along the way. Has the NBI succeeded in its mission? What has been accomplished and what still needs to be done? Expectation levels at its launch were very high and there was the anticipation of major investment flows into the basin. Some 20 years later, much has changed both within and beyond the basin. Whilst much has been achieved, the NBI still has a long journey ahead.
