IFC’s Global Industries, Manufacturing, Agribusiness and Services (CMG) department is seeking two interns as part of our Global Internship Program (GIP).  The Global Internship Program (GIP) offers highly motivated individuals an opportunity to be exposed to the mission and work of IFC and the broader World Bank Group and become part of the largest private sector development institution in the world. The program encourages individuals to bring new perspectives and innovative ideas to IFC’s work, while improving skills in a diverse and highly stimulating environment. Moreover, the Global Internship Program provides a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and network with international professionals dedicated to ending extreme poverty and boosting prosperity in the developing world.

Duties and Accountabilities:  

The Paris Agreement on Climate Change aims to stabilize the increase in Earth’s global mean temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels, pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Mitigating climate change and helping our clients and member countries adapt to climate change risks and impacts is a strategic pillar of the WBG. 

The decarbonization of the industrial sector is critical to achieving the climate change goals of the Paris Agreement.  The challenges facing many industries, particularly energy-intensive ones, are significant and require a multi-faceted, collaborative, and phased approach.
To address the challenges of Industrial Decarbonization in emerging markets, the International Finance Corporation (IFC) is developing an impactful Global Industrial Decarbonization Program FY24-28.  


The objective of this assignment is to provide support services towards the development, implementation, and operationalization of the IFC Global Industrial Decarbonization Program. 

Scope of Work  

The intern will perform the following tasks to support the development/implementation of the Industrial Decarbonization Program: 
• Develop global cost curves for selected manufacturing industries and their value chains and prioritize ways to achieve reductions in carbon / energy intensity & costs as drivers of sustainable cost and climate competitiveness. This will enable IFC to benchmark and guide clients in their strategic & investment decarbonization priorities. A key part of this work is to identify IFC engagements with demonstration effect / scalable models that can help to incrementally shift industry cost curves in the medium and long-term. 
• Development of technical and financial toolkits for specific subsectors. Support the TTL in other aspects of strategic planning, scoping, and implementing activities related to this program.
