The African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) has announced the call for applications for the Charles R. Wall Leadership Program. The program consists of two components — the Charles R. Wall Young African Policy Fellows and the Charles R. Wall Conservation Leadership and Management Fellowship — and aims to build communities of skilled and connected young African professionals that will drive meaningful transformation in conservation in Africa.
The Young African Policy Fellows Program, which is in its second cohort, purposes to train young professionals to be policy negotiators on International Environmental Governance, especially on the Convention on Biological Diversity. The 9-month program is offered by AWF and the U.N. Environment Programme (UNEP).
The inaugural Conservation Leadership and Management Fellowship is a 9-month intensive and pioneering pan-African leadership program for young African professionals in the conservation sector led by AWF. With a key focus on self-leadership, team leadership, and organizational leadership, the fellowship brings together young African professionals from business, NGOs, the public sector, and community-based entities that are leading impact in the environment space. Charles R. Wall Conservation Leadership and Management Fellowship will impart them with transformational leadership and management skills needed to lead systemic impact in environmental issues.
