Once again we welcome a new group of fellows for our six-month training programme. The 2019 UNU-LRT fellows will stay for six-months at UNU-LRT to advance their knowledge and skills on halting land degradation, restoring degraded land and managing land in a sustainable way.
The fellows are 21 this year, 10 men and 11 women, and come from 10 countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Central-Asia: Ghana, Malawi, Uganda, Niger, Lesotho, Ethiopia, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. The fellows are all experts in their respective countries working on issues related to land use and land management.
This is the largest group of fellows that has attended the programme so far and we look very much forward to be working with them in the coming months. We warmly welcome them all!
