Internship for Project Results Analysis – World Fund Unit
The World Organisation for Animal Health, previously known as the “Office international des epizooties” (OIE), was created on 25 January 1924. Its headquarters are in Paris. The OIE comprises 182 Member Countries and is present on all continents through 12 (Sub-) Regional Representations. The OIE is in charge of improving animal health, veterinary public health and animal welfare worldwide, as well as transparency of the global animal disease situation. The OIE is furthermore recognised by the World Trade Organization as the reference organisation for intergovernmental standards concerning the sanitary safety of international trade of animals and products of animal origin and zoonoses.
The OIE World Animal Health and Welfare Fund (the OIE World Fund) was initially created in May 2004 by a resolution voted by OIE Member Countries. The legal basis of the OIE World Fund now forms part of the revised OIE Basic Texts, voted and adopted by the World Assembly of National Delegates to the OIE in 2011. The OIE World Fund is a multi-donor trust fund established to implement “projects of international public utility relating to the control of animal diseases, including those affecting humans, and the promotion of animal welfare and animal production food safety”. The OIE World Fund Unit contributes to the sustainability of the OIE’s activities by undertaking resource mobilisation efforts, and collecting voluntary contributions, through building strong relationships with relevant resource partners, as well as by performing project management of investments received in coordination with OIE technical teams.
Recognising the importance of giving appropriate visibility of resource partner investments in the OIE, the World Fund Unit is interested in working with an intern to scope ways to communicate on its project portfolio and achievements to date. This Internship will support the conceptualisation and development of tools which support this objective.
