About WRI Indonesia

World Resources Institute Indonesia (WRI Indonesia) is an independent research organisation dedicated to contributing to the socioeconomic development of Indonesia in an inclusive and sustainable way. Our work is focused on four main areas: forests, climate, cities and transportation, as well as governance. We turn big ideas into action at the nexus of environment, economic opportunity, and human well-being.

Established in January 2014 with its headquarter in Jakarta, WRI Indonesia is a non-profit research organisation affiliated with the World Resources Institute, a global environmental think tank based in Washington D.C. WRI has a research network of over 450 experts and staff in more than 50 countries with offices in China, India, Indonesia, Europe and the United States. In Indonesia, we have run projects with partners for over 20 years, and WRI Indonesia was formally launched to build a robust in-country presence, to formalise existing partnerships, as well as strengthen our research on the ground.


This position is suited to undergraduate candidates with distinction marks, majoring in environmental studies, environmental sciences, forestry, or international relations.
