UNDP works in about 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results.
UNDP is working to strengthen new frameworks for development, disaster risk reduction and climate change. We support countries' efforts to achieve the new Sustainable Development Goals, which will guide global development priorities through 2030. The key 2030 Agenda principle of leaving no one behind and stamping out inequality is at the core of everything we do.
UNDP focuses on helping countries build and share solutions in three main areas:
INTERNSHIP OFFICE BACKGROUND
The UNDP Seoul Policy Centre for Knowledge Exchange through SDG Partnerships (USPC), established in 2011, represents UNDP in Korea, works with Korea on international issues, and shares Korea’s development experiences with other countries through global knowledge exchange. Through ‘SDG Partnerships’ in three thematic areas – i) governance, ii) resilience, and iii) development cooperation, USPC acts as a facilitator of global knowledge exchange on innovative and tested-and-proven policy solutions in strategic areas of expertise. USPC’s global knowledge exchange works as a vehicle for the RoK-UNDP collaboration on creating new solutions, building collaboration platforms, and sparking new partnerships and instruments for development.
USPC offers a small group of outstanding final year undergraduate and graduate students, the opportunity to acquire direct exposure to UNDP’s work and gain technical knowledge and experience in international development and multilateral cooperation. USPC’s working language is English; and it offers an international working environment.
The internship will offer the experience of deepening one’s knowledge on various Governance issues and building the professional experience with related communications, writing as well as editing for UNDP Seoul Policy Centre, particularly for the governance programme. It will also provide exciting communication and collaboration opportunities with Korean government and non-government institutions, as well as with overseas UNDP offices and their national partners in various countries around the world such as Algeria, Argentina, Bhutan, Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, and Kyrgyzstan. The internship will help refine the communications and writing skills in the field of international development—which will strengthen the candidate’s core skills for any career in the future.
