Org. Setting and Reporting

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment. Its mandate is to coordinate the development of environmental policy consensus by keeping the global environment under review and bringing emerging issues to the attention of governments and the international community for action. UNEP’s Ecosystems Division works with international and national partners, providing technical assistance and capacity development for the implementation of environmental policy, and strengthening the environmental management capacity of developing countries and countries with economies in transition.


The loss of forest, and the accompanying loss of ecosystems and the services they provide, threatens the security and livelihoods of local communities, reduces access to clean water, decreases soil productivity and accounts for 12 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. In recent years, it has become apparent that the most significant threat to the world’s remaining forests is conversion for commercial agriculture and other non-forest use. Many of the environmental benefits of intact forest are unpriced ‘externalities’, resulting in the market mispricing natural forest assets. By converting forest to land and then producing tradeable commodities that the market can price, land users are able to take advantage of this perceived arbitrage opportunity. Anticipated global economic growth and changing diets will strengthen the demand for agricultural commodities and place additional pressure on forests in the foreseeable future, meaning that the pressure will get even bigger than it is today without a changing paradigm how land is managed and agricultural commodities are produced. The challenge is to advance sustainable land use by developing business models that can manage sustainable commodity production while also maintaining forests and forest ecosystem services.


Against that background, UNEP initiated a new Land Use Finance Project (‘the project’) to proactively help unlock and (re)direct public and especially private capital towards sustainable land use, including deforestation-free soft commodity production. The project is effectively an umbrella for a number of initiatives and finance facilities that UNEP either leads or is involved in, including the Tropical Landscapes Finance Facility (a partnership with BNP Paribas and ADM Capital), the GEF Good Growth Partnership, the & Green Fund (a new de-risking vehicle set up by the Norwegian Government and IDH) and a partnership with Rabobank, FMO, Mirova/Althelia and IDH to unlock capital for deforestation-free agricultural production.


UN Environment is interested in expanding its work in unlocking private finance for sustainable land use, by establishing finance facilities that help reduce the risk and costs for private sector actors to direct capital to agribusiness firms and other private sectors. This is on the condition that more stringent forest protection and/or restoration measures are developed. In parallel, UN Environment will work with partner governments to create the right enabling framework – through regulation and economic incentives – to accelerate the drive towards sustainable land use.


This Internship position is located in the Land Use Finance Unit of the Freshwater, Land and Climate Branch, in Ecosystems Division within UNEP in Geneva, Switzerland, with the intended purpose of supporting this work for a minimum of three (3) months, to a maximum period of six (6) months.
