Such environmental leaders are expected to address problems of water quality, water resource and ecosystems that Asia and African nations are facing today. They will plan and implement strategic solutions to these issues and prevent potential risks to the environment.

A total of 228 students have completed since the start of the program in 2009, and many of them have already been playing an active role as environmental leaders in many parts of Asia.
