- environmental policy for sustainable governance;
- integrated management of landscapes of Andean forests;
- management and restoration of Andean forests; and
- biodiversity and ecology of Andean forests.
Applicants may be of any nationality and must have at least three years of research experience. To participate, you must complete the following form that will be available until June 16. The results will be announced on July 21.
The Grant Fund is an initiative of the Andean Forests Program, which is part of the Global Climate Change Program of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and is facilitated by HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation and CONDESAN.
