The United States has announced a commitment of $5 million to establish a fellowship programme in partnership with The University of the South Pacific under its Roadmap for a 21st Century U.S. – Pacific Islands Partnership.

This fellowship will link USP and premier universities in the US, such as the University of Hawaii and the University of California Santa Barbara and offer rising leaders in the Pacific Islands the opportunity to gain expertise in natural resource economics and management, climate resilience, sustainable food systems, renewable energy development, water security and waste management.

USP Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Pal Ahluwalia has welcomed this announcement and says they are delighted that the US administration has chosen USP to collaborate with leading universities in the US on this fellowship programme.

He adds climate change and sustainable development continue to be major issues for the Pacific region and the region desperately needs relevant expertise to address climate change issues and by-products while also building climate resilience.
