The UNDP Regional Bureau for Africa (RBA) team in New York provides overall strategic oversight, guidance and quality assurance, management support and broader regional analysis, including global issues.
RBA’s Strategy and Analysis Team (SAT) is seeking a highly-qualified graduate student to engage as an Economics Research Intern to support the team working for the completion of the Least Developed Countries report, a flagship publication of the UNDP, and support publication of the ongoing UNDP Africa Working Paper Series.
Least Developed Countries (LDCs) are countries that exhibit the lowest indicators of socioeconomic development. Despite efforts taken by many countries to transition from this group, only very few of them have graduated. The objective of the LDC Report is to examine risks associated with LDC graduation and proffering pragmatic suggestions on how to ensure rapid and successful graduation from LDCs. The intern will assist the creation of this report, and ancillary working papers, through literature reviews, analyzing case studies, drafting, editing, and proofreading, in collaboration with SAT.
The intern will report to the RBA Chief Economist and work closely with strategic advisors and the communication specialists. The internship is for a minimum of three months with an opportunity for extension to a maximum of six months.
The internship is unpaid and full-time. Interns work five days per week (35 hours).
