UNEP, CEP, SPAW, GEF…these are just a few of the many acronyms that I have researched, read about and even referenced during the course of my academic life. But even then, these remained distant representations of entities/programmes that I could only dream about someday working with. This internship was the beginning of making that dream a reality.

This first week of my internship with the Caribbean Environment Programme has so far been a very interesting experience. I am helping with the organization of the 2nd LBS-STAC meeting in Managua, Nicaragua and in doing so I’m learning a lot about how to engage with different governmental organizations and international institutions.

My first week here at the UNEP CAR-RCU office has been great.  I have spent the majority of my time researching UNEP’s various sub-programmes, projects, and literature.  Everyone at the office is incredibly welcoming and willing to help myself and other interns find our way about Jamaica.  I am slowly beginning to place the names with the abundance of smiling faces.

I’m already half way through my internship, and so far I love it- I’m getting a world of new experiences and my responsibilities are increasing weekly. These experiences have helped me gain a greater insight into the way environmental organizations operate.

I’ve been here for a little over one month, and a lot has happened since my last entry. As I mentioned, I assisted in researching facts for CEP’s upcoming Kid’s Page. Since then, the website has mostly been completed, and presently a Marine Litter interactive game is being developed. I have had the opportunity to sit in on various electronic meetings with the professionals developing the game for CEP. It’s been very interesting learning about the game-making process, and being able to provide input. I’m very excited for the game to be up and running!  I have been learning a lot about what goes into creating a website. Last month, I helped to categorize data for the regional laboratory database which will be a part of the CEP website.

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.

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.

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.
