Program Details

The Israel Public Policy Institute (IPPI) and Heinrich-Böll-Foundation provide young professionals in the field of climate security, adaptation and mitigation with the opportunity to take part in its paid Fellowship Program ‘Climate Security – German and Israeli Perspectives’.

The fellowship will provide upcoming researchers in the field of climate change adaptation and mitigation with the opportunity to work at the Tel Aviv offices of EcoPeace Middle East, a unique organization that brings together Jordanian, Palestinian, and Israeli environmentalists. The Fellows gain first-hand experience in transnational environmental protection and learn about the management of shared resources.

In the course of the program, the fellow is required to write a policy paper on climate security and opportunities for cooperation across regions to contribute to the growing understanding of climate change as a threat to security. As part of the program, the Fellows analyse the issue at hand, define challenges and reflect on best practices from Israel and Germany.

The fellowship will take place in Israel for a duration of four months between February 2019 and July 2019. Selected applicants will receive a monthly stipend of 750€ for their participation in the Fellowship.
