Are you working academically or practically in climate protection or climate-relevant resource conservation in your home country – a non-European developing or transition country?

Sustainability topics relating to natural resources, resource-efficient consumption or urban development are also welcome.
The fellowships are funded through the International Climate Initiative of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV).
