PhD Scholarship Program on Climate Change Research
Established in 1988 by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the leading international body for assessing climate change.
The IPCC was awarded the Nobel peace prize jointly with Al Gore in 2007 and, with the prize money it received, created the IPCC Scholarship programme for doctorial students from developing countries to study the effects of climate change in their own regions.
A committee of scientific experts from the IPCC select young researchers every 2 years to be awarded scholarship funding.
In 2011, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation formed a partnership with the UNEP and in 2013 the Cuomo Foundation joined the initiative and to date has supported 16 doctoral projects.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle; today this mantra has become familiar to us all and its instructive actions form part of our day- to-day lives, activities. It is our individual contribution to the now urgent collective global efforts for a greener future.
In the meantime, climate change scientists and researchers continue to investigate, analyse and anticipate in their work the environmental impacts for the future. By anticipating the transformations to come, they urge governments and official bodies to shape future ecological policies.
Our efforts in this field help young researchers from developing nations to embrace novel methods and tools to counter issues related to climate change in their own countries.
