Special poster session for young professionals

A special session devoted to showcasing cutting edge research and innovative development approaches will be organized during the last day of the Conference. The aim of this special session is to provide a forum to young professionals from the region to showcase research findings on the main sub-themes of the Conference. 

The themes are:

  • Quantitative Approaches for Effective Targeting of Poverty and Vulnerability
  • Challenges in Inclusive Development (Gender, Indigenous Communities and Marginalized Groups)
  • Migration and Remittances
  • Climate Change Adaptation
  • Mountain Goods and Services
  • Inclusive Economic Development

Young professionals (up to 35 years old) are encouraged to submit a 300 word abstract highlighting their research findings in any of the themes listed above in addition to a visual outline of the poster. The research work should highlight issues/concerns, or document innovative approaches that address critical issues within the particular sub-theme, and thus contribute to the deliberation on the sub-themes during the Conference. A total of approximately 24 posters will be selected for presentation covering all the eight countries of the Hindu Kush Himalayas. Selected poster presenters will be provided support to attend the Conference. 

Closed now: deadline 20 October 2013

Selected young professionals will be informed of their selection by the end of 1 November. The poster session is only open to the young professionals from countries in the HKH region.
