The last three weeks have been relatively hectic, but enjoyable and enlightening. This real life experience that I will gain through my internship will prove to be valuable.

Coming into UNEP as an intern, I was very excited on my first day to learn about the work I’d be doing with the Communication, Training and Awareness (CETA) programme. My first day here, a Friday, was spent mostly as a day of orientation during which I was introduced to the staff and other interns, shown around the office, and finally attended a meeting the CETA programme Officer had organized for myself and the four other interns. The P.O of CETA (who is also my supervisor) gave a comprehensive presentation explaining the work the Caribbean Environment programme (CEP) does through its different projects, in particular, CETA.

Under UNEP internship, I have been assigned the job of assisting Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ) in supervision of EU Climate Change Project. I am supposed to develop a methodology for rapid assessment of knowledge, attitude and practices of communities which are vulnerable to climate change. In first three weeks of internship, I did a lot of reading to get familiar with the project and to research for the relevant methodology ideas for assessment.

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.

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.

My first week at the UNEP CAR-RCU office flew by and I have really enjoyed it so far. After a fairly painless trip into Kingston, I spent my first few days in the office orienting myself, getting to know co-workers, figuring out the routine, reading about the SPAW Protocol in order to be familiar with the material, etc.

Everyone in the UNEP CAR/RCU office is very helpful and welcoming;

After I applied for an internship at the United Nations Environment Programme Caribbean Regional Coordinating Unit earlier this year, I was not expecting such a speedy response from their office and was surprised that I was actually accepted – I mean after all it’s the UN !

I arrived in Kingston, Jamaica Saturday night and was fortunate enough to meet a Jamaican man who generously offered me a ride to the house where I’m staying (and who had the same name as me, naturally). Since my arrival I have continued to find Jamaica to be a warm and welcoming place.
