Lisa at IUCN’s Blue Carbon Initiative, Washington DC

I spent the past 4 years before coming to MIIS in Indonesia, working with several NGO’s in the field of sustainable development.   After seeing first hand the extent that Indonesia’s marine and forest resources are being destroyed and degraded, I wanted to learn about policies that can incentive their conservation.    I am thrilled to have the opportunity to intern with IUCN’s Blue Carbon Initiative this summer, where I will be researching how mangrove forests can fit into the international REDD+ policy framework.  I’m hoping this internship will be a building block to a future career working on climate change policy and sustainable development in Indonesia.

Blue Carbon:   Mangroves in Indonesia

I arrived in DC last weekend in the midst of a shockingly hot heatwave.  Now that it’s cooled off a little and I’ve spent a few days getting oriented in the office, things are looking good.   Earlier this week I attended a lecture on forestry modeling at WWF headquarters with Alyssum.  Next week is Capitol Hill Ocean Week, so I’ll be attending lectures and events related to ocean policy issues all week.  Should be a great networking opportunity!  DC has so much going on, two months is going to fly by!

    Thanks for the strategies you have discussed here. In addition, I believe there are many factors which will keep your car insurance premium decrease. One is, to consider buying cars and trucks that are inside the good list of car insurance companies. Cars which can be expensive tend to be more at risk of being snatched. Aside from that insurance policies are also good value of the car, so the higher in price it is, then the higher a premium you spend.
