Internship - Designing Policy Approaches under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement

The Global Green Growth Institute internship program (also called "Grow Green" Program) provides a unique learning opportunity for students and recent graduates from diverse academic backgrounds. The program is designed for talented and motivated individuals skilled in areas relevant to GGGI’s operations. The program allows selected candidates to gain insight into the work of the Institute and provides assistance and training in various professional fields in a multicultural environment. We encourage qualified women and men, in particular, nationals of developing countries, with diverse professional, academic, and cultural backgrounds to apply. 

Current Opportunity

We are looking for a talented individual to work with us in the global team leading a ground-breaking project on designing national policy approaches under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement, with a focus on developing approaches that could potentially generate Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcomes (ITMOs). These policy approaches are aimed at being wider and more encompassing than the historic project-based carbon markets, creating the transformational change needed through national impact to increase ambition.

The assignment includes the following but not limited to:

  • Learn and understand the project scope and objectives
  • Research and analysis of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) documents in English, Spanish, and/or French
  • Collect and consolidate data and liaise with country teams
  • Provide any other support in policy identification and technical assessment, as required

Eligibility

To be eligible for an internship, candidates must:

  • Be enrolled in a Bachelor’s (final year), Master’s or PhD program prior to internship assignment, or a recent graduate within the last 12 months.
  • Be engaged or recently engaged in academic study in a field directly related to the Institute’s work
  • Possess an excellent command of English.

Qualification

  • Strong command of French or Spanish
  • Familiarity with the Paris Agreement and concept of carbon trading
  • Proficiency in MS Office (Word, PowerPoint, and Excel)

Selection Process

  • Applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered.
  • GGGI evaluates applications based on eligibility requirements, relevance of academic study and work experience (if any); and the level of interest and motivation to contribute to development work.
  • Due to high volume of applications, only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
