TRAINING: MS Programme on Integrated Land Management in Drylands
The third phase of the MS Programme on Integrated Land Management in Drylands – a joint initiative by UNU, CAREERI, ICARDA, INAT, IRA and Tottori University was just announced.
The MS Programme is designed to enhance the capacity of developing countries to manage their drylands resources. It is intended to provide young professionals and scientists an international perspective on resource management approaches in drylands and to gain practical experience in different dryland countries. Students enrolled in the programme will attend a short course and will complete a research project co-supervised by one of the programme partners. The MS Programme is jointly offered by the six partner institutions as an internationally accepted degree.
Deadline for applications is 25 August 2008. [more information]
