Blog Entry2nd Entry
My first month has come to an end. I have spent the majority of the time assisting the staff within the AMEP sub-programme in the organization of the Second LBS STAC Meeting in Nicaragua. Preparations for this upcoming meeting are still ongoing, and my duties involve mostly correspondence with participating governments and organizations. As a result of this activity, I’m learning how complicated organizing these types of meetings can be, where many countries and institutions are involved, deadlines have to be respected while delegates wait for approval from their governments, and everything has to be done in compliance with procedures.

As another month is ending I’m beginning to feel quite sad as the end of my internship experience is getting closer. During this month, I have been spending much of my time doing desk based research, reviewing AMEP protocols and guidelines and helping with the translation of several reports in Spanish.

It has been a little over one month since my last entry. The last few weeks have kept me fairly busy, doing a variety of tasks. The highlight this time was helping to prepare for International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB) on May 22. Making plans for this occasion was a great learning opportunity and pushed me out of my comfort zone in so many ways. I remember having to psych myself up to make the first few phone calls to the agencies we would be collaborating with for an Expo and Forum on Island Biodiversity. However, after a while, I became more comfortable relaying and receiving information.

Time certainly has flown and my internship has come to an end with the SPAW sub –programme at UNEP CEP. It’s amazing how much I’ve learnt and I smile now as I realize that the onslaught of acronyms that I encountered when I had just arrived, no longer intimidates me.

This month has gone by quickly, I can’t believe that it’s already two months since I have been here, working at UNEP and living in Jamaica!

Blog Entry1st Entry - July 18
I have completed my first week at UNEP CEP. The first week in a new office environment can be very challenging including getting used to a new routine, meeting new colleagues, learning their names, and their roles within the organization. In addition to this, I am learning more about the work of the Caribbean Environment Programme (CEP) including the three sub-programmes, Communication, Education, Training and Awareness (CETA), Specially Protected Areas and Wildlife (SPAW) and last but not least, the Assessment and Management of Environmental Pollution (AMEP), which I will be supporting for the duration of my internship.

Blog Entry Troff document3rd Entry - 29 August
After several months of severe drought, we have finally had a bit of rain in Jamaica. Rain has a wonderfully restorative effect.  The air seems fresher, the sky appears bluer, and the streets seem cleaner. Kingston positively sparkles after a long-awaited rain. In addition to the explosion of green covering the previously parched brown earth, the roadways and sidewalks are scoured clean of accumulated trash.

Finding your feet and learning the new office culture is similar to exploring a country when travelling. Meeting new co-workers, learning customs, identifying hierarchies, familiarising yourself with the do’s & don’t’s along with establishing your tasks and role in the office.

In recent weeks I have become more familiar with the general activities of the UNEP CEP office and in particular with the strategies around communication and raising awareness to and across stakeholders in the region and beyond.
