The Call for the second cohort of the One Planet Fellowship closes
The One Planet Fellowship is building a robust pipeline of scientists equipped to use a gender lens to help Africa’s smallholder farmers adapt to climate change. It is designed to build and enhance the mentoring, scientific, networking, and leadership skills of the next generation of climate scientists. Established in December 2017, the One Planet Fellowship launched its inaugural cohort of scientists consisting of 44 early-career scientists from 12 African countries.
The call for the second cohort of the Fellowship which closed on March 31, 2020, attracted 903 applications from 14 African countries (Algeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote d'Ivoire, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania, Togo, and Zambia). Applications received from the six anglophone countries totaled 546, while those received from the eight francophone countries were 357.
