World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the world’s leading conservation organization, seeks a recent undergraduate or student pursuing a graduate degree to perform delegated project management and research tasks as relevant to active food loss & waste program workstreams. The intern may have the opportunity to influence research directions, depending on skills and interests. The intern will complete necessary organization and coordination functions to support workstream progress. Organization and coordination functions may include: agreements processing, tracking relevant current events, meeting minutes and record keeping, document editing, conducting literature reviews, and other tasks as needed. They will support active US food loss & waste workstreams- to primarily include work with farms and hotels- as well as global coordination of network projects and staff.
Community-based natural resource management (CBNRM) is a widely implemented conservation intervention that seeks to empower local communities to manage and derive benefits from natural resources. Since the 1980s, CBNRM has proliferated rapidly, particularly in southern Africa, Asia, and South America. Despite the rapid expansion of both community-based interventions and studies examining these interventions, the evidence base describing what works, what doesn’t, and why remains limited. Integrated conservation and development programming, like that implemented by the CARE-WWF Alliance, also lacks systematic evidence about what works, what doesn’t, why and how.
WWF is seeking a motivated intern to analyze data on how community conservation and development efforts in Mozambique (led by the CARE-WWF Alliance) have influenced household well-being. The successful candidate will focus on exploring the food security and wealth impacts of community-managed fisheries, forests and mangrove interventions, using time-series quantitative household surveys (triangulated by qualitative data.)
The key research questions are:
- What impacts have community-managed fisheries, mangroves, and forests had on community food security and wealth?
- How do impacts vary… between female and male-headed households? …and between communities that participated in both CBNRM and development interventions compared with those that participated in one, the other or none?
Social Science Graduate Intern (Qualitative Analysis, Portuguese Language)
In 2008, CARE and WWF joined forces in Mozambique to reduce poverty and conserve biodiversity in what later became the Area of Environmental Protection, Primeiras e Segundas (P&S). The CARE-WWF Alliance invested in a 2008 baseline and 2014 midline household survey. After a decade of implementing a variety of development and community-based conservation interventions across the landscape, an end-line household survey is being completed in September 2018 in select project sites. The household survey will be complemented by qualitative focus groups designed to triangulate findings from quantitative anal-ysis, understand pathways of community-based natural resource management (CBNRM) impacts in communities and households, and understand what else could have contributed to more sustainable natural resource management and household well-being. This evaluation seeks to answer the following questions:
- What impacts have community-managed fisheries, mangroves, and forests had on community food security and wealth??
- How do impacts vary… between female and male-headed households? … and between communities that participated in both CBNRM and development interventions compared with those that participated in one, the other or none?
WWF-US currently is seeking a Graduate Social Science Intern (Qualitive Analysis, Portuguese Language) to support preliminary qualitative data analysis for the CARE-WWF Alliance.
World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the world’s leading conservation organization, seeks a Global Science Network Intern for Spring 2018.
Sound science underpins effective conservation. WWF has a wealth of scientific expertise across its offices around the world, ranging from anthropologists to zoologists and encompassing the biological, physical, and social sciences. For these scientists to contribute most to achieving WWF’s mission, they need to communicate, collaborate, and coordinate with each other. A range of services to enable these interactions and facilitate access to the latest scientific information is being provided by the new WWF Conservation Science Network. We are looking for a motivated intern to help us continue to develop and promote the GSN, with an emphasis on maintaining and growing online resources.
World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the world’s leading conservation organizations, seeks an international climate cooperation summer intern. The international climate cooperation pillar (ICCP) of WWF’s climate team seeks a full-time intern to primarily assist with research, analysis, and coordination to support the team’s work on engagement within the UN climate talks and efforts to support countries to meet or exceed their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement. This intern might also assist other projects related to planning for the Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS) in California and aviation climate policy.
