Call for the IPBES young fellows pilot programme launched
10 / 05 / 2015, IPBES
IPBES, the Intergovernmental science-policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, launches a call for nominations for the IPBES young fellows pilot programme, focussing on land degradation and restoration.
The pilot programme is targeting young scholars who wish to gain experience by participating in the development of the regional and sub-regional assessments (Africa, Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe and Central Asia) or the thematic assessment on land degradation and restoration. Selected fellows will take part as contributing authors to the chapter of the assessment they are selected for. Fellows will attend two author meetings and receive training to gain an in-depth understanding of the IPBES assessment processes. Fellows from developing countries and countries with economies in transition will receive support to attend these two meetings, in accordance with UN rules.
On-line applications can be completed till 31 May 2015.
