The ClimateSense Professional Internship Program is designed to build adaptation capacity in recent post-secondary students, as well as host organizations within the public and private sectors.
A number of Island organizations were selected to host a recent post-secondary graduate for a six (6) to twelve (12) month internship for 2021. During this time, our interns worked with mentors within the host organization to complete a sector-specific adaptation project, and also took part in ClimateSense Training and Development Programs.
We are pleased to present our 2021 Internship Projects.
City of Charlottetown &
Town of Stratford
ClimateSense Intern Abhishek Pokharel partnered with both the Town of Stratford, looking at their vulnerable pumping stations and coastal properties from climate change, and the City of Charlottetown, involved in efforts to manage rainfall derived inflow and infiltration in the sewer network. In the course of his internship, they have also been involved in projects and courses related to living shorelines, asset management, water system modeling, and infrastructure resiliency.
We are pleased to present Abhishek's final project.
