Description du stage : The project primarily involves collecting data, conducting analysis, and developing scientific reports and public awareness materials which describe the current "state of the coast" initiatives undertaken by FAST.

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, under the supervision of FAST, will participate in initiatives related to the description and analysis of the current state of the coast initiatives in Tanzania. Specifically the intern will work with members of FAST in collecting data from archival, publication and field sources on coastal zone issues; conduct reviews and analysis on the data collected; and develop information packages (reports, community media) which reflect these results in ways that are beneficial and relevant to the coastal zone stakeholders (government, community groups, academics).
