The Directorate works across a broad range of issues such as climate change, biodiversity, water, eco-innovation, resource productivity and waste, environmental policy tools and evaluation, safety of chemicals, biotechnology and nanomaterials, and linkages between environment and tax, agriculture, energy, transport, development assistance, trade- and investment policies.

The Carbon Market Platform team of the OECD Environment Directorate is now seeking to recruit an
intern to contribute to the team’s work on the interplay between carbon credit markets, with a focus
on environmental integrity. The OECD’s work on the topic explores role of different carbon credit
markets (e.g. Article 6 under the Paris Agreement and voluntary carbon markets), how these interact,
and how they can uphold environmental integrity. This is done through both research and convening
activities, which inform policy discussions at the international level.

environmental integrity, using a wide range of sources.
➢ Supporting quantitative analysis of carbon market data, including through data collection and
