MK30 is launching a call for a fellowship program aimed at water professionals interested to enhance their knowledge and skills on inclusive governance and management of water and ecosystem services in the Ayeyarwady River Basin.

The fellowship programme aims to gather a group of professionals that is interested in enhancing and will contribute to Ayeyarwady river basin management. It will do this by creating a common understanding of water, land and ecosystems in the Ayeyarwady to support cooperation between key organizations involved.

The programme will pay ample attention to enhancing fellow’s personal skills, including presenting, cooperation, and debating skills. The programme focuses strongly on active learning through interactive training workshops and project work coached by experienced water professionals.

The project is targeting mid-level professionals of relevant water and water-related organizations including national and state government, academia and training centres and civil society. A minimum of 5 years of experience in the areas of management, engineering design and/or implementation of water-related projects is required and fellows must show interest in active contribution to water resources management in Myanmar.

The fellowship programme has a duration of 12 months and consists of 4 training events of approximately 1 week, plus coached project work.

The fellowship will include:

  • access to the four training events
  • training material
  • project work
  • coaching
  • a small budget for field work, travel to/from workshops, lliving costs
  • a certificate after successful completion

The most exemplary 2 to 3 fellows will be invited to present their work at the annual regional WLE Greater Mekong events and will be actively supported in acquiring further fellowships for international training or internships.
