United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
|UNDP Malawi Country Office (CO) has been supporting the Government of Malawi and Civil Society Organizations Taskforce in establishing a National Peace Architecture (NPA) to serve as the national pillar for peacebuilding, conflict prevention and transformation. The NPA will be represented at national and district levels where these structures will engage in a collaborative manner with other key stakeholders in peacebuilding and transformative dialogues that foster unity and social cohesion.
One of the objectives under the NPA is to conduct conflict research and analysis, which requires systematic collection and management of conflict-related data from a wide variety of sources. The NPA is in process of establishing conflict database based on which conflict analysis will be drawn and peacebuilding interventions will be decided. In this context, UNDP is looking for two interns to support data collection and analysis. The interns will also contribute to analyzing trends and early warning signs of conflict through media monitoring.
Scope of Work
The intern will provide support in the following areas:
Under the guidance of the Communication Office and Social Cohesion project staff, the interns will assist in data collection and information gathering to support the data collection, consolidation, management and analysis processes. The Interns will gain valuable insight into the working of the UN system as well as build their capacity for future work opportunities, particularly in the area of peacebuilding and conflict transformation.
