The United Nations Foundation links the UN’s work with others around the world, mobilizing the energy and expertise of business and non-governmental organizations to help the UN tackle issues including climate change, global health, peace and security, women's empowerment, poverty eradication, energy access, and U.S.-UN relations.
The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD), hosted at the UN Foundation, with a distributed team working from five countries, is a fast-growing, dynamic international partnership bringing together over 200 different organizations including governments, UN agencies, private companies, civil society organizations, and many others. The GPSDD makes connections and brokers partnerships to address the problems of gaps in data production, poor data use, access, quality, and works with stakeholders to fully harness the new opportunities of the data revolution in the service of sustainable development.
The intern would be a full part of the GPSDD secretariat team and would report directly to the Senior Director of Policy. S/he would also collaborate with the Policy Associate, the M&E Manager and the External Relations team.
