Global Platform for Action Climate and Sustainability Academy Fellowship is a joint initiative between Chatham House and the Global Platform for Action on Sustainable Energy in Displacement Settings (GPA) hosted at The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), and the University of Oxford Refugee-Led Research Hub (RLRH).
The fellowship offers candidates the opportunity to spend ten months at Chatham House working on a personal project. Fellows are strongly encouraged to consider how they can develop the existing research of the Environment and Society Programme and GPA Transforming Humanitarian Energy Access (THEA) programme on the topic of humanitarian energy.
The programme provides inclusionary analysis and evidence to support the energy needs of all displaced people. They focus on quantitative data analysis to support the aims of delivering inclusive humanitarian energy action in refugee settings.
Fellows take part in the core work of the Institute, developing their skills through the leadership programme, and furthering their professional network in the field of international affairs.

Citizenship: The fellowship is open to individuals who have lived experience of forced displacement such as identifying as a current or ‘former’ refugee, asylum seeker, internally displaced person, stateless person, or another category.
