MAB Young Scientists Awards
UNESCO MAB Young Scientists Awards: helping young people help the planet
Since 1989 MAB has been providing 10 young researchers each year with awards of up to US$ 5,000 in support of their research on ecosystems, natural resources and biodiversity. Through the MAB Young Scientists Awards, MAB is investing in a new generation of scientists worldwide because we think well-trained and committed young people are key to addressing ecological and sustainability issues.
The International Co-ordinating Council of the Man and the Biosphere Programme (MAB-ICC) examined applications for the MAB Awards for young scientists during its 24th session on 9-15 July 2012.
