Presentation

The climate emergency now constitutes one of the most important global challenges of the next few decades. In sub-Saharan Africa, the rise in temperatures will have impacts in areas as wide-ranging and crucial as food security, access to water and health care and migration management, or even the prevention of regional conflicts and wars. African media outlets have a key role to play, not only in raising awareness, but also in educating the public on the challenges of global warming.

Following on from Terra Media and Médias 21, CFI is marking a new step in its support of East African media in addressing climate issues, by launching the Dunia project. Its aim is to raise awareness among media managers and journalists regarding the importance of integrating environmental issues into their editorial policies, to train them to carry out in-depth work on the handling of these issues and to report on them in all their aspects.
