Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. UNDP works through 136 country offices to provide development advocacy, advice and assistance to 166 countries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Arab States, Eastern Europe, CIS, Latin America and the Caribbean, working to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The SDG Integration Team sits at the center of UNDP’s Global Policy Network (GPN), with the aim to advance and connect UNDP’s integrated services across sectors and countries to support implementation of the 2030 Agenda. The SDG Integration Team builds a coherent and consolidated menu of services emphasizing direct short- to medium-term engagements to support countries in formulating evidence informed integrated policy solutions using state-of-art tools and data. UNDP’s offer on SDG integration is anchored on four key enabling services areas, including: Integrated Policy Solutions; SDG data, metrics, and analytics; Knowledge and Innovation; and SDG finance. In this effort UNDP has been partnering with key agencies, academia and think tanks to drive research on innovative policy solutions and approaches to integrated support on the SDGs and tailor tools to country needs and make them available to governments, including building capacities in countries to have lasting impact.
This internship will focus on (a) supporting integrated policy analysis for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda; and (b) supporting research on a broad range of sustainable development issues, including political economy and legal analysis of the data revolution for sustainable development.
