The Markets Institute at WWF is a thought leadership platform committed to identifying global issues and emerging trends that affect the most critical threat to our finite planet - the production and consumption of food. Our goal is to increase the speed and scale of solutions that make a more sustainable future possible. We accomplish this by convening science-based, multi-stakeholder groups to build awareness and consensus around urgent issues and trends and develop approaches to advance innovation and accelerate change at scale. Using multiple lenses to look at global challenges and laterally connect the dots, we empower partners with insights as well as pilot solutions to avoid risk, stay ahead of the curve, and proactively drive change at the speed of life.

Research Internship - Monitoring deforestation and forest degradationBackground
Deforestation and forest degradation continue to be critical topics in the global environmental, biodiversity conservation and climate change agendas. Despite increasing commitments from governments and non-state actors, and several innovative initiatives implemented on the ground, forests continue to be degraded and lost at an alarming rate.
Understanding the factors explaining the different trends (e.g. slowdown, stabilization, expansion) of deforestation is critical to inform debates on the effectiveness of current solutions, particularly those associated with policy regime changes, and corporate efforts to delink deforestation from their supply chains, often with the support of conservation NGOs. Furthermore, there is a need to place greater emphasis on forest degradation, and its interactions with deforestation, to assess whether deforestation is an unavoidable consequence of forest degradation, or whether deforestation-free initiatives are simultaneously contributing to improved forest quality – this in the context of wider debates on climate change mitigation, and strategies for protecting forest ecosystem services.
This internship will support WWF’s ongoing efforts to analyze the state, threats, drivers, and responses related to managed forest. The candidate will be working with the WWF Forest Team in Washington, DC to collect, review and synthesize spatial and non-spatial datasets on the state of forests, as well as drivers and responses related to deforestation and forest degradation, in select geographies.
