Countries most vulnerable to climate change impacts have the least information about it. Help bring journalists from the developing world to participate in COP16. Help close the information gap.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Too little information about climate change in developing countries comes from local journalists with local perspectives and concerns. There is an huge information gap. Climate change impacts are significant, yet access to quality information remains low. Journalists from developing countries are largely absent from major climate conferences, creating both an in-country information vacuum and an international environmental governance deficit. Our Fellows provide coverage for their home countries
How will this project solve this problem?
Internews will bring global south journalists to the UN's climate change negotiations in Mexico to provide them training from international experts, access to negotiators and scientists, technical expertise, editorial guidance, and much more.
Potential Long Term Impact
The planet’s future will be decided in the developing world. Home to four-fifths of the world’s population and fastest growing economies, these countries will ultimately determine how drastically our climate changes.
