Leadership for Environment and Development (LEAD) Pakistan under its flagship Leadership Development Programme (LDP) has invited applications for fellowships from junior to mid-level professionals belonging to different sectors in Pakistan.
Since 50 percent of mankind is now urbanised, the battle for economic growth, climate change, poverty alleviation and health of communities will be lost and won in cities in the 21st century. Given its vital importance, the 19th cohort of LDP has been themed around urbanisation and titled as ‘Urban Resilience and Sustainable Cities’.
The 19th cohort will have sessions on sustainable urban planning, urban resilience, low carbon development and role of cities to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The application deadline is February 2, 2016, and the selected candidates will be informed by February 21, 2016. Key points in the eligibility criteria include education of 16 years or above, along with minimum experience of three years and interest in LDP topical areas. LEAD Pakistan will cover all travelling and accommodation costs for learning sessions.
