EcoAgriculture Partners is a nonprofit organization based in Washington, DC, engaged in research and advocacy in sustainable agriculture, rural development, landscape restoration and biodiversity conservation. Specifically, EcoAgriculture Partners strives for a world where agricultural communities manage their landscapes as ecoagriculture to enable them simultaneously to enhance rural livelihoods, conserve biodiversity and ecosystem services, and sustainably produce crops, livestock, fish and fiber.
EcoAgriculture Partners is the convener of the 1000 Landscapes for 1 Billion People (1000L) initiative, a radical collaboration of change agents working together to accelerate landscape efforts to sustain and restore ecosystems, build rural prosperity and confront climate change.
Reporting to the 1000 Landscapes for 1 Billion People Program Coordinator, the intern will undertake program activities for EcoAgriculture Partners over a negotiable period that can begin as soon as the right candidate is available. The program intern will gain an understanding of integrated landscape management by supporting the work we do in finance, policy, capacity development and climate-smart agriculture.
The 1000L Program Intern will regularly interact with program staff across the 1000L initiative and gain an understanding of international rural development and finance, integrated landscape management, and international policies related to agriculture, ecosystem restoration and biodiversity. The Intern will also meet weekly with the 1000L Program Coordinator for feedback, to monitor the status of projects, and to develop projects of their own design.
Tasks and duties include:
A stipend of approximately $400/month (depending on time commitment per week) is available.
