Lien Environmental Fellowhsip Programme Philosophy
The initiative argues for identifying candidates who are working at university and research institutes and have the desire to help a community so that the people can be better served with clean water and good sanitation (can be any one or combination of the areas identified).
A crucial element in the assessment will be commitment of the target community to participate and take ownership of the project. In essence, the Programme seeks to start with a concept, continues in the laboratory, and is then applied to benefit the targeted community.
The Programme seeks to support solutions with potentially far-reaching and long-term benefits to the community and the ecosystem.
