MIL Internship Opportunity at the Great Green Wall Accelerator of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) in Bonn, Germany

Imagine a living symbol of hope, the largest living structure on the planet, one that stretches 8,000km across Africa, ushering in a new era of sustainability and economic growth. Launched in 2007 by the African Union, the game-changing African-led Great Green Wall initiative aims to restore the continent’s degraded landscapes and transform millions of lives in the Sahel. In 2021, the Great Green Wall Accelerator was launched to consolidate the progress made to date and support and scale the ongoing efforts of the Great Green Wall and its 2030 ambitions. 


Hosted by the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) in Bonn, the Accelerator is searching for one or two (preferably French speaking) students from Wageningen University & Research to join the UN coordinating team in facilitating collaboration among donors and stakeholders and help all actors to better coordinate, monitor, and measure the impact of their actions.
