Scholarship programme for young management professionals from developing and emerging countries in the field of climate and resource protection (phase I)

International exchange of knowledge, methods and technologies is key to effective global climate and environmental protection. Every year, the International Climate Protection Fellowship programme for future leaders from developing countries and emerging economies provided up to 20 fellows with the opportunity to conduct a research-based project of their own choosing within the field of climate protection and resource conservation at a host institute in Germany. The research period in Germany strengthened the knowledge and expertise of fellows on these issues. Upon their return to their home countries, the fellows are able to apply their knowledge which has a positive impact on climate and environmental policy.
