World Resources Institute (WRI) is an independent, nonprofit global research organization that turns big ideas into action at the nexus of environment, economic opportunity and human well-being. We are working to address critical challenges that the world must overcome this decade in order to secure a sustainable future for people and the planet: climate change, energy, food, forests, water, sustainable cities, and the ocean.
WRI’s US Climate Initiative seeks a US-China Policy Intern for its US-China High-Level Dialogue on Energy and Climate Change. The goal of the dialogue is to foster constructive bilateral peer-to-peer exchanges between climate experts in the US and China on topics including items under the Paris Agreement, subnational cooperation, and carbon pricing. Participants from the U.S. are primarily composed of former high-level U.S. government officials, representatives of leading NGOs and the private sector. Participants from the Chinese side are principally drawn from China’s National Expert Panel on Climate Change. WRI takes the lead to organize annual meetings of the dialogue and to work with participants to produce briefing materials and discussion papers. You will work closely with the project team, led by Distinguished Senior Fellow Andrew Light. You will have the ability to engage with other WRI staff and external partners providing thoughtful leadership to the dialogue and assisting with dialogue products.
This is a full-time, 12 week summer internship with start date options of May 16, June 3, or June 17, 2019, based on the student’s availability and need for the project.
