Fellowships for enhancing capacity of African Institutions: The Centre for Environmental Economics and Policy in Africa (CEEPA) is mandated to enhance the capacity of African researchers to conduct environmental economics and policy inquiry of relevance to African problems and increase the awareness of environmental and economic managers and policy makers of the role of environmental economics in sustainable development.
Under co-funding from the Swedish International Development Authority (SIDA) and the Canadian International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Centre for Environmental Economics and Policy in Africa (CEEPA) will be implementing the regional program to strengthen capacity building in environmental economics and policy in Africa over the next three years.
Under this program, Visiting Fellowships for African scholars working in universities in the eastern and southern African region will be funded annually.
The purpose of the fellowship is to enhance teaching and research capacity in environmental economics and to help sustain the staff development that has occurred in the past decade and to contribute to creating an environment in which retention of staff within participating departments is enhanced.
The fellowship will be used to support two faculty members who wish to use a sabbatical or study leave away from their home institution.
Fellows may spend a visiting residency at participating departments in the region or international centres of excellence.
This Visiting Fellowship program provides financial support of up to USD$30,000.00 per annum in total for a full 9 months residency period.
