The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation’s fellowship programme promotes prospective leaders from threshold and
developing countries who are engaged in climate protection and resource conservation in academia or business,
government or non-governmental organisations. Up to twenty fellows are funded annually. They will come to Germany
for a year to work alongside a host of their own choosing on a joint project dedicated to the exchange of knowledge,
methods and techniques. The aim is to create a network in which German and foreign experts will work together on a
sustainable, international basis to combat climate change and its global consequences. The fellowships are funded
under the Federal Environment Ministry's (BMU) International Climate Protection Initiative.
