The United Nations Office for REDD+ Coordination in Indonesia (UNORCID) is currently looking for highly qualified and motivated postgraduate students and recent graduates for its internship program. UNORCID interns have the opportunity of learning in-depth about the establishment of the Reductions of Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) mechanism in Indonesia. REDD+ is at the heart of the global climate change debate and provides a great opportunity for achieving meaningful emissions reduction and sustainable development at the same time.

UNORCID serves as the UN's primary point of contact for supporting the Indonesian government in establishing a REDD+ mechanism, coordinating between different UN Agencies and connecting REDD+ Indonesia to global climate change policy.

UNORCID interns can choose between different internship cycles (all between 3 and 6 months) and focus areas, including but not limited to Environmental Economics, Biodiversity, Policy & Strategy, Monitoring and Evaluation, Communications and Forest Management.
