Description du stage : The project "Sustainability of Uruguay's Coastal Zone" aims to enhance the capacity of the Universidad of the Republic to support Uruguay's efforts to effectively manage its coastal areas through the development of a graduate program in integrated coastal zone management and through the enhancement of its abilities to work with government, communities and other stakeholders involved in addressing coastal zone management issues. The intern will act as a team player in the project assisting with all facets of the project from curriculum review and development; stakeholder consultation and identification of priorities and opportunities for institutional and policy changes necessary to meet the objectives.

In Canada
The intern will undertake extensive predeparture preparation prior to their overseas posting including: research of host organization and country; health assessment /immunizations, travel arrangements and accommodations; access to intern resource centre/library; and one week prior to departure, all interns meet at MI for briefings. During the week, the interns will undertake consultations with former interns, faculty members, and expats; and participate in a three-day predeparture briefing conducted by The Centre for Intercultural Learning (CIL). This briefing includes: cross-cultural effectiveness (e.g. communicating with difficult people, emotional intelligence); culture shock awareness; personal and professional career planning and goal setting; health and safety; gender issues related to local context; international and country development issues; presentations to one another; and group work. Interns are trained in results based management and report writing. Interns are provided contact information for host organization and supervisor to allow for introductions, delineation of duties, and expression of desired outcomes or expectations prior to departure. Interns are also matched with a network of local/national/ international contacts within their field.

The intern will assist with data collection, curriculum review and development, stakeholder needs assessments, logistical reviews and planning to prepare the way for small community pilot projects. The goal of the project is to enhance Uruguay's national capacity to effectively manage its coast, through its outreach capacity and strong university-government community collaboration. The intern will provide assistance to the team where required to advance the project goals. Spanish fluency is essential.
Organisation d'accueil : Universidad de la Republica (UdelaR)
Détails au sujet de l'organisation d'accueil : The Universidad de la Republica (UdelaR) is the national full-service university of Uruguay. Presently, UdelaR is expanding its programs to include a Masters degree in Integrated Coastal Management (which is being developed in conjunction with Dalhousie University). The purpose of the degree is to better define the university's role as a major institutional player in coastal management, through training, information dissemination, cooperative community research initiatives and policy delineation. Training will be highly integrated, incorporating a multi-disciplinary approach that is used in Dalhousie's own Marine Affairs Program-the conceptual model for this initiative. Finally, the curriculum will reflect consultations with local stakeholders, regional partners in other southern cone countries, and Canadian stakeholders.
