Educational and Professional Background

Provide us with a short summary of the educational and professional experiences that qualify you for the Workshop. This should not be your full resume. You can click-and-drag the lower right hand corner to expand the entry area.


In the interest of "training trainers," it is important that a senior decision-maker at your company, group, or organization endorses your application to the Workshop. If you are admitted, this person should be committed to helping you create opportunities to present and re-teach what you learn about water diplomacy to your fellow staff, students, or associates. For example, you two should discuss the possibility of setting aside time for you to present some of the Workshop's key ideas and materials to others. Please list the contact information for a leader at your group or organization with whom you have discussed your application to the Workshop and, if you are accepted, the possible ways you might help improve your organization's capacity for water diplomacy, not just your own.
