DIME's diverse portfolio offers interns and consultant's the opportunity to contribute to projects across all development sectors, including agriculture, public sector governance, climate change (energy, environment and water), financial & private sector, human development, entertainment education, transport, trade, gender, and fragility, conflict and violence.
