What the fellow says:

"The UNESCO / Keizo Obuchi fellowship Program allows me not only to focus on my postgraduate research studies at the Goettingen University, but also to explore areas of leadership and opportunities to contribute to environmental issues, such as climate change and renewable energy initiatives. I am extremely grateful for all the support that the fellowship Program provides to me."
