Khartoum bridges the gap between North and South of the globe; it is a safe city, situated at the beautiful confluence of the White Nile and the Blue Nile forming the River Nile.

April in Khartoum offers visitors the chance to experience nice and dry weather with plenty of sunshine and blue sky.

We are expecting massive contributions from the Americas, Europe, Asia as well as from the region. Your contribution in this important meeting is highly appreciated. For further information please visit the conference website at:
