The Statistical Information System internship is for at least two months with an opportunity for extension up to six months, depending on the needs of the division.
The internship is UNPAID and full-time.
Interns work five days per week (35 hours) under the supervision of a staff member in the department or office to which they are assigned.
The ESCAP Statistics Division is guided by the Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics and the Principles Governing International Statistical Activities, and by the work programme and the membership of ESCAP. Our mandates arise from a number of General Assembly, ECOSOC and ESCAP resolutions.
The core areas of the Division’s work include implementing programmes for capacity building in statistics; collecting and analysing data on the region; and publishing statistical and analytical publications.
