The Mayor’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is the City government's chief financial agency. OMB's staff of analysts and experts assembles and oversees the Mayor’s expense and capital budgets, which fund the services and activities of approximately 90 City agencies and entities.

Part of the work of Climate Budgeting is to understand how much environmental/climate progress we have made in the past, how much progress is expected in the near future, and how to achieve long-term goals. The intern undertaking this summer project will aid in work on city government and external (including academic) data, models, and maps in order to inform resiliency decision making. They may also work on assessing the climate adaptation impacts of budgeted city work and modeling the key performance indicators and data used to quantify those impacts. The intern will get to learn about how city government agencies interact and may be asked to write memos or other materials to aid in Climate Budgeting, in addition to data analysis. The intern will regularly present updates on this to the rest of the ESR team.
