The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is the nation's most effective environmental action organization. We use law, science and the support of 3.1 million members and online activists to protect the planet's wildlife and wild places and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all living things. NRDC was founded in 1970 and our staff helped write some of America's bedrock environmental laws, including the Clean Water Act, and many of the implementing regulations; our water enforcement cases played a major role shaping current water policy throughout the country. Today, our staff of more than 500 lawyers, scientists, economists, policy and communications experts, and others, work out of offices in New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Bozeman, Montana and Beijing.
This is a 3-month Fellowship open to Stanford students only.
NRDC is seeking a Fellow to work with its climate and international teams focusing on analysis, report development, and advocacy, to pursue NRDC’s strategic priority areas of climate change, health & cities, and international climate policy. The Fellowship project is part of the International Program and works with experts both internally and externally with expertise in climate change, health, energy efficiency, climate finance and air pollution. The Fellowship will provide an excellent opportunity to investigate major barriers and potential solutions to air quality, greenhouse gas (GHG) and petroleum reduction goals. The Fellowship includes analysis of India’s renewable market, energy efficiency, climate adaption focused on heat stress, air pollution, and implementing the Paris Climate Agreement. Work products may include stand-alone documents or memos that will be incorporated into NRDC reports, factsheets, blogs, briefings, and presentations. The Fellow will have the opportunity to engage with other stakeholders and policy-makers.
