The U.S. Forest Service International Programs, supported by USAID’s Central Africa Regional Program for the Environment, awards annual scholarships to promising government officials who complete Forest and Environmental Management Master's programs to improve capacity within environmental ministries across the region. Scholarship recipients traveled from Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Republic of the Congo, and São Tomé & Príncipe for a two-day networking event in Brazzaville in December 2017, where current students and program alumni had the opportunity to share their areas of expertise with U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of the Congo Todd Haskell. Training the next generation of professionals in the environmental sector is an essential step in helping countries develop sustainable economies as well as find ways to adapt to and mitigate the effects of climate change.
