PDS projects are capacity building activities developed during the first half of Professional Development Seminars (PDS). Groups established during the first session of the Seminar continue to work in together during the year-long inter-session period and present the results of their networking at the second session of the PDS. These activities are designed to develop proposal writing skills, encourage network building and to promote the application of the training provided to pressing real-world issues that have a significant global change dimension.
