Integrated National Watershed Research and Development Project Fellowship Program
The Integrated National Watershed Research and Development Project (INWARD) is announcing the initial offering of its fellowship program to interested graduate and undergraduate students. The fellowship program is open to qualified undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of social, economic and biophysical sciences, policy development, and indigenous and local knowledge related to biodiversity conservation and watershed management.

Project Objectives

  • Establish wireless sensor networks that generate real-time information
  • Establish networks of permanent biodiversity monitoring plots (BMPs)
  • Assess the interrelations of watershed and ecosystem services with human and natural factors
  • Develop and/or validate models and tools on hydrology and land allocation
  • Develop an information-management system that synthesizes data from the watershed networks into real-time spatial estimates of water balance, sediment yield, flood and landslide risks, and other key information
  • Conduct selected studies in the watersheds
  • Develop culture of research among graduate and undergraduate students in watershed management and allied fields
  • Build capacity of local government units, schools and other stakeholders for watershed monitoring and use of watershed information and empirical databases in planning and decision making
  • Generate data and information that will feed into related projects
