The objective of this activity is to support future leaders in the fields of Biodiversity Conservation, Natural Resources Management, Environment adaptation, Clean Energy, Water and Sanitation and Agriculture and Food Production.
PRESTASI seeks to support scholars studying the relevant aspects that increase access to water supply and sanitation services.
Specific areas of study include, but are not limited to:
Water Supply and Environmental Sanitation
Water Safety Plans
Wastewater and Sewage Management
Natural Resource Management directly related to water supplies
Hygiene Promotion and Environmental Health
Water and Sanitation Policy
PRESTASI seeks to support scholars studying the relevant aspects in clean energy.
Renewable energy generation and engineering (hydropower, solar, wind, geothermal, biogas)
Energy planning and policy reform
Innovative renewable energy
Greenhouse (GHG) modeling and inventories
PRESTASI seeks to support scholars studying the relevant aspects in Environment adaptation
Improved environment adaptation practices in agriculture, fisheries, urban and land use management
Weather information services
Adaptation policies and practices in development and the private sector, water management, coastal infrastructure, meteorology, oceanography, hydrology, other natural science
Natural resource management
Disaster management/ disaster preparedness
Also to be included are studies on international, national, and sub-national climate policy, financing, and coordination; better communication and media development as related to climate adaptation and disaster issues; and laboratory and field based studies on biological organisms that might increase the adaptive potential of Indonesia (i.e. plants to rebuild coastlines, drought tolerant crops, heat tolerant reef species, etc.). Applicant should intend to complete research associated with climate change adaptation or resilience.
