Internship Description: Internships offer graduate-level students the opportunity to acquire direct exposure to UNDP’s work. They are designed to complement development-oriented studies with practical experience in various aspects of multilateral technical cooperation, but also complement other international studies. UNDP’s support for development puts partnership at the centre of all aspects of our work. Our partners include governments, the United Nations system, international financial institutions, the private sector, foundations, academia/think-tanks and civil society organizations. Through the work of the Crisis Prevention and Recovery practice area, UNDP helps more than 80 countries to prevent conflict, reduce the risk of natural hazards and disasters, and recover following crises. It strengthens development gains in post-crisis countries by addressing the underlying causes of violence; reinforcing governance and the rule of law; supporting livelihoods; and by using short-term employment schemes that allow local people to rebuild critical infrastructure following disaster.Caribbean Risk Management Initiative (CRMI).
