WRI has been fortunate to receive experienced secondees from around the world to support its work - starting with a staff person from SIDA joining WRI fifteen years ago. More recently we have received staff from the US EPA, from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and from DANIDA. In addition, WRI has hosted numerous visiting fellows from African partners, and has provided a staff person to the Dept of Energy in the U.S. federal government.

We have found these relationships tremendously beneficial for the Institute and our mission. Each exchange exposes WRI to new thinking and our partners to WRI's work, while outplacements provide our staff a valuable and much-appreciated professional development opportunity. Over the next five years, we plan to grow the number of staff we receive from and provide to close partners and funders in order to increase collaboration and cross-pollinate ideas. WRI and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs recently took an important step toward this goal by agreeing a two-way, three year secondment arrangement to begin in late 2012.

This opportunity is shared with WRI experts internally and WRI Alumni as we seek the highest regarded expertise to provide support to the Dutch development cooperation programmes in the priority sectors of water and food security.
