Registration to the competition is open until May 31, 2020. Students, PhD (candidates) and undergraduates, whose research works are aimed at studying issues in the field of sustainable management of water, land, energy resources or the environment related to climate change, are invited to participate.

The goal is to train and unite young professionals in the field of climate change and sustainable management of natural resources, as well as to develop and strengthen research activities. Students will be able to participate in applied research and test their skills in pilot territories in countries of Central Asia and Afghanistan.
Winners will get up to US $1,500 to conduct further research on the topic.
