Blog Entry2nd Entry
In last three weeks, I customized the methodology as per the project needs by developing different sets of questions to be asked during interviews and focus groups. The assessment also includes use of seasonal calendars and it was fun to prepare them for site visits. Apart from the major preparation activities, I attended two meetings which turned out to be new learning experiences for me.

I can’t believe that it’s time for me to write my third and last intern blog! Time passes by very fast in Kingston. This last month of internship was the most exciting one. I conducted the assessment with four sets of target groups including public and private sector officials, community leaders, local forest management committee members and fishermen. I used semi-structured interviews and questionnaires as tools for data collection. Each assessment session turned out to be different from others.

My internship began on the 3rd of September 2012 and I arrived in Kingston from Sweden two days prior. I spent my first week getting settled in and learning to find my way around town. On my first day at the UNEP office I was introduced to the staff and kindly greeted by all. I was then given some documents and reports to review in order to learn about the main objectives and activities of SPAW.

Time flies and today marks the beginning of my fourth week at the CEP office. Preparations for the upcoming STAC and COP meetings are still ongoing and I have spent my days assisting Nishka with the documents. Most of these are published on the website in three different language versions: English, French and Spanish.

Finally back at work after almost a week of being sick at home.  Here it’s buzzing with activity as we have entered in to the last days of preparations before the meetings in Punta Cana next week. The staff members that will attend the meetings, which is more or less everyone, are flying out at the end of this week and there is still plenty that must be done before they leave.

My internship with UNEP will soon come to an end and I’m having a hard time reconciling with the fact that I will soon have to leave beautiful Jamaica and go back to dark and cold Europe. Brrr!

Last blog entry. Tomorrow is my last day at UNEP and the day after that I fly back to Sweden. I’m so happy that I came here and so sad to leave. The only regret I have is that I did not apply and plan for a 6 month long internship instead of only 3 months. If you are given the chance to do an internship here at the UNEP CAR-RCU, don’t miss it!

My first month has come to an end. Things seem to be moving too fast which is a indication that I am certainly enjoying my time so far. Living arrangements with UNEP administrative staff member, Ms. Levy, has been quite comfortable and I have become increasingly familiar with the city of Kingston. Kingston is a much bigger city than I originally thought.

The month of March was primarily focused on assisting to prepare for UN World Water Day which was held on March 22nd at Devon House, in Kingston. Devon House is a National Heritage Site, owned by the Government of Jamaica and serves to promote the development of all aspects of Jamaican culture and expression. I felt it was the perfect site to host the event.

My Jamaican experience began on the 29th of January: I arrived to Kingston in the early morning and quickly found the way to my new home. I spent the first week  settling down, jogging around the neighborhood, getting used to the city and then after that I made  my first exploration of the island. After visiting Portmore and Hellshire Beach, I went to Port Antonio and spent the weekend there.
