UNFCCC Fellowship Programme

UNFCCC Fellowship Programme

The objective of the fellowship programme is to contribute to building capacity
for addressing climate change in non-Annex I Parties, in particular small island
developing States (SIDS) and least developed countries (LDCs) Parties, through
the development of local professional expertise by:

Supporting innovative analytical work on climate change in the context of
sustainable development;
Promoting a network of experts who can bring creative and innovative options to
bear on questions of climate change;
Encouraging the leadership potential of young and promising professionals in
their fields.

The programme target group consists of mid-career professionals who are already
in a government’s employment and who are nationals of and working in a
developing country, particularly a SIDS and LDC Party. While fellowships are
awarded to individuals, the need for training must occur within the context of
the institution for which an applicant works. The training must help the
institution to develop its capacity. This means that the applicants must:

Obtain permission from their employer for leave of absence for the term of the
fellowship, and provide written certification that s/he will return to the
Party’s governmental institution addressing climate change after her/his
fellowship for at least six month;
Get a written certification from their employer that the subject of the proposed
training is relevant to the needs of the organization.

This programme is not intended for students, and does not provide financial
support for an advanced degree, such as fieldwork for a PhD degree.


The fellowship programme is open to individuals working in a broad range of
governmental organizations, ranging from educational institutions, research
institutes and ministries. Candidates must meet the following criteria:

each fellow according to her/his own area of expertise and interest. Once the
work programme is determined, the selected fellow will be placed in the relevant
secretariat programme, under the supervision/guidance of a programme officer
designated by the hosting programme.

Fellows are expected to prepare an analytical paper of 20 - 30 pages containing
the results of their work at the end of the fellowship period. The paper should
be prepared in English to the extent possible, but may also be submitted in
French or Spanish. In special cases, the paper may be prepared in one of the
other official languages of the UN (Arabic, Chinese, or Russian). The paper will
