About UNDP Global Internship

UNDP is the development arm of the United Nations. Present in 170 countries with over 17,000 people, UNDP works on the world’s biggest problems: extreme poverty, climate change, good governance, renewable energy, crisis prevention, and women’s empowerment, among others.

The recently approved UNDP Strategic Plan 2022-2025 highlights the importance of digital as one of the key enablers to achieving UNDP’s mandate.

UNDP’s Digital Strategy 2022-2025 builds upon the Strategic Plan and puts forth a vision whereby digital is an empowering force for people and the planet, in which the implementation of digital public goods is a strategic priority for enabling inclusive digital ecosystems globally.

The digital transformation focuses on developing the organization’s capability to leverage existing, emerging and future digital technologies and the opportunities they offer to profoundly improve the way UNDP creates and delivers value and benefits for those we serve; UNDP’s recently finalized Digital Strategy 2022-2025 guides these efforts and builds off UNDP’s extensive range of digital initiatives spanning the country, regional, and global levels.

The position of Digital transformation Intern will be part of the team under the Chief Digital Officer( CDO).
