The International Centre of Excellence in Water Resources Management (ICE WaRM) provides a national focus and international gateway to Australia’s education, training and research expertise in water. Operating as WaterEd Australia and based in Adelaide, the Centre was established in 2004 as an Australian Government initiative, with the support of the South Australian Government.
The International Centre of Excellence in Water Resources Management (ICE WaRM)is building international recognition as Australia’s centre for leadership and innovation in collaborative approaches to water resources management, through its growing partnerships both in Australia and internationally. ICE WaRM facilitates collaboration in water-related research, education and training opportunities for international scholars wanting to advance their careers.
ICE WaRM offers a scholarship programme to attract high quality international students to education and training in water resources management, delivered by ICE WaRM partner institutions.
The CRS International Development Fellows Program is intended to give people who are interested in a career in international relief and development an opportunity to increase their overseas experience and gain broad exposure to CRS programs. Each year, CRS has approximately 20 placements with our country programs (based overseas). Assignments are for one year.
Specific job responsibilities vary greatly from one country to another depending on the country program’s focus (Agriculture, Health, Peacebuilding, Education, Microfinance, social assistance or a combination of these). The goal of the IDFP is to place Fellows in positions where they can draw on their previous education and work experience, while broadening their skills. Many of our fellowships lead to regular positions with Catholic Relief Services.
