WLE is currently seeking an intern to support the synthesis of its Phase 1 (2012-2016) research program.

Illustrative areas of analysis and synthesis include:
- Land use practices to restore ecosystem services in degraded landscapes.
- Sustainable and cost-effective options to reduce water related risks to agriculture.
- Solutions to support equity in natural resources management and agricultural production.
The post is open from 15 April 2016 for a 3-month period, possibly extendable, and will be based in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
