Hosted by Universitas Gadjah Mada under the theme ‘Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation’, the 2019 ProSPER.Net Young Researchers’ School (YRS) will be held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, from 3rd – 12th March, 2019.
The YRS will give participants the opportunity to engage with issues related to Ecosystem-Based Disaster Risk Reduction (Eco-DRR) in the context of the tropics, whilst developing research and communication skills, as well as further encouraging future professionals to work within the field. Participants will also develop an understanding of the issues and problems related to hazards and disasters within the context of the UN 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The YRS will consist of in-class components (lectures, practical/individual/group assignments, presentations, and discussion sessions) as well as field trips held in Yogyakarta and the surrounding area.
**Applications to the YRS have now closed. Stay tuned for a report on the school in the coming months. **
