The programme includes: a professional development component for the selected candidate; and support for a research project into the contribution of traditional knowledge in adapting to climate change and/or maintaining healthy ecosystems and biodiversity, and the linkages between traditional knowledge and science and new technologies in order to inform policy and action on the ground.
