1. Background
The Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) is a partnership of the riparian states of the Nile. The NBI seeks to develop the river basin resources in a cooperative manner, share substantial socioeconomic benefits, and promote regional peace and security. Within the framework of the NBI, the Governments of Burundi, Rwanda and Tanzania have received financial support from various donors for implementation of the Regional Rusumo Falls Hydroelectric Project (RRFHP), conceived as part of the Nile Equatorial Lakes Subsidiary Action Program (NELSAP).

The Regional Rusumo Falls Hydroelectric Project is a project under joint development by Burundi, Rwanda and Tanzania. In March 2006, Ministers of Energy of the three countries signed in Kigali a Joint Project Development Agreement, reconfirming their commitment to jointly develop the RRFHP.
