 The United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), and the ProSPER.Net Secretariat organised the 2017 ProSPER.Net Young Researchers’ School (YRS), held at the International University – Viet Nam National University Ho Chi Minh City (HCM-IU), Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam,  6 – 15 March, 2017.

The main goal of the Young Researchers’ School (YRS) is to provide graduate students with an opportunity to better understand the spectrum of challenges that underpin sustainable development. By assembling these young scientists together for an intensive ten day workshop, the School fosters the growth of a network of sustainability scholars and professionals in the Asia-Pacific region. The School will offer PhD students in the network an opportunity to engage with issues related to water security in the context of sustainable development, while developing research and communication skills, and encourage future professionals to work within the field of sustainable development.
