The beneficiaries of the project are water professionals who are responsible for key decision making processes in the governments of SIDS. The fellowship covers the cost of tuition fees, accommodation and travel. IHE Delft provides at least 20 key water professionals with MSc level education on relevant topics for the SIDS, in two batches that started in 2015 and 2016.
The 18 month MSc programmes include 6 months' field based research, conducted on specific problems in the home country of the participant. Furthermore, IHE Delft provided at least 50 water professionals and decision makers with specific expertise on relevant topics, by enabling them to enroll in UNESCO-IHE Short Courses that start in 2016 and 2017.
