Reports & Resources
A comprehensive resource kit from UNFPA and WEDO on gender, population and climate change. Learn how gender equality can reduce vulnerability to climate change impacts and how women are uniquely positioned to help curb the harmful consequences of a changing climate (2009).
We invite you to imagine how the actions we take together bring us closer to our goal of a healthy and peaceful planet, social and economic justice and human rights for all.
Opportunities, Grants & Fellowships
Fellowship and internship applications (for graduate students and undergrads, respectively,) are accepted on a semester basis, reviewed in April, August and December and on a rolling basis when capacity permits . The duration of each fellowship/internship depends on the needs of the fellow/intern and WEDO programs. A minimum two-month commitment is required and applicants available for longer commitments are encouraged. Fellows/interns will conduct research and writing, provide administrative assistance, attend meetings, and undertake other tasks as necessary, under the direction of the relevant programmatic staff.
