These two activities ensure that WWF remains abreast of the latest dynamics of international politics and WWF priorities are seen as being relevant to the political debates and new public policy measures. The Hot House is a rapid-response unit with a mix of skills in the staff, giving it the ability to produce analysis of conservation issues in the context of the overall political dynamic.
The Hot House at WWF International required a young and dynamic team of researchers with backgrounds in international relations and political science who were available for short-term assignments. This is where the WWF Youth Volunteer Internship Programme was able to contribute to the project by recruiting people of high calibre with a diversity of backgrounds necessary for global policy.
