The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity project has an internship opportunity beginning in August 2009. TEEB is a major international initiative to bring attention to the global economic benefits of biodiversity, highlight the growing costs of biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation and draw together expertise from the fields of science, economics and policy to enable practical actions moving forward. TEEB aims to assess, communicate and mainstream the urgency of actions through its four deliverables, a) D0: science and economic foundations, policy costs and costs of
inaction; b) D1: policy opportunities for national and international policy-makers; c) D2: decision support for local administrators; d) D3: business risks, opportunities and metrics and e) D4: citizen and consumer ownership.

Internship purpose

- To provide experience in international policy-making with an opportunity to work on economic and biodiversity issues that complement the candidates field of study and also contribute to TEEB objectives.

- To practically engage interns with scientists and experts and support the development of TEEB reports on science and economic foundations, policy evaluation for policymakers, decision support for administrators, business risks and opportunities and consumer ownership.

- To expose interns to the overall structure of TEEB, its regional goals, communication strategies and final deliverables.

- To present interns with a platform to learn more generally about the policy and projects of UNEP and interact with other UN agencies.

Selection of interns will be based on a strong background in environmental and biodiversity management, policy or resource economics.

Prospective candidates must submit a curriculum vitae and a letter of interest for an expected internship period starting in August 2009.
