FELLOWSHIP: Mekong Program on Water Environment and Resilience (M-POWER)
The Mekong Program on Water, Environment and Resilience (M-POWER), with the support of the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) through the CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF), announces its call for concept notes from professionals, researchers, government officials, and others interested in the water resources of the Mekong Region, their management and future.
The main objective of this research fellowships program is to build capacity of people interested in improving research-based knowledge and policy for the fair and sustainable management of water resources in the region. A complementary objective is to ensure research fellows gain experience from at least one other country in the region, in addition to their home country.
This call for concept notes will follow a three-step process. Concept notes will first be evaluated. Short-listed applicants will then be coached to develop a full proposal by attending a required Research Planning Workshop. A research fellowship grant will only be offered if a short-listed applicant joins the workshop and subsequently submits a high-quality, approved Research Plan.
Deadline: August 9, 2012
