Canada: Sustainable Development Goals internship- policy and information management
Closing date: 2017-01-20Application : Apply for the job
Organization: United Nations University
Closing date: 20 Jan 2017
Although data are the lifeblood of decision-making, it has been internationally recognised that too often, existing water and sanitation data remain unused because they are not accessible, not of high quality, not well harmonized, or not available at the level of detail or in the form required for decision making. There is also a need to move from collecting and analysing data from different tools separately, to using a single, agreed evidence base that is fit-for-policy.
The key product of this initiative is the SDG Policy Support System (SDG PSS). After existing data are collated into the SDG PSS, the system automatically synthesises and evaluates that data against SDG 6 targets and indicators and fit-for-policy evidence are reported to decision makers in easily referenced summaries. The data that are targeted by the SDG PSS are water-related, but cover a range of policy-critical themes, including gender mainstreaming, financing, disaster risk reduction/resilience mainstreaming, capacity assessment, and policy and institutional assessment.
The SDG Policy Support System is being trialed in five countries Republic of Korea, Ghana, Costa Rica, Pakistan and Tunisia. In 2018 it will be freely available online in English, French and Spanish.
We are looking for an intern (unpaid position) to assist in the development of the excel-based SDG Policy Support System in particular, and support the work on accelerating the progress against water-related SDGs in general.
- Updating, improving, and overall management of excel-based tools. The management of excel tools will require liaison with people from different countries and with a range of user needs. The design and writing of related documents, including detailed user guidelines.
- Contributing knowledge and ideas for innovation to the project and associated products.
- Eligibility requirements as available at: http://inweh.unu.edu/internships/
- A third or fourth year undergraduate student or a postgraduate student or degree holder
- Excellent experience in information management
- Considerable experience using and designing products in Excel
- Fluency in English
- Good interpersonal skills
- An understanding of water management concepts and the Sustainable Development Goals
- Experience in or knowledge of one of the five policy-critical themes noted in the background
- Knowledge of French and/or Spanish
Duration and Start Date:
The duration of internship is at least 3 months, which may be extended to 6 months depending on the need and work progress. The internship is expected to start at a mutually agreed date in February 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.
How to apply:
Interested applicants should apply before 20 January 2017 by following the application procedure available at: http://inweh.unu.edu/internships/
