South Asian Water (SAWA) Leadership Programme on Climate Change is a fellowship program that awards fellowship to women enrolled in master's level Interdisciplinary Water Resources Management (IWRM) program across four universities in South Asia. The programme has evolved as a continuation to the Crossing Boundaries (2005-2012) and SAWA Fellowship (2012-2016). The current fellowship program aims at facilitating the creation of a group of interdisciplinary women leaders in south Asia, having a common understanding of the crosscutting scientific and societal issues of water resource management. Since this programme lays emphasis on leadership and intensive trainings, the number of awards is less in comparison to the earlier phase. The duration of the project is 4 years (2017-2021) with a funding support from International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Canada. South Asia Consortium for Interdisciplinary water resources studies (SaciWATERs) is the nodal agency in the implementation of the program and also functions as the coordinating body with the program partners and IDRC.
