Presentation

As host to the 2015 Climate Conference in Paris, ahead of the event, France wants to instigate a positive debate, bringing people together, on the subject of the fight against global warming.
To help raise awareness of the issues posed by global warming as widely as possible, the "Media 21, Journalism and Climate Change" project is designed to inform and educate the media in East Africa, Madagascar and Southeast Asia on the challenges and implications of this international event. It aims to make climate change a topic of discussion in areas that are already suffering the effects of global warming, with a view to raising awareness among the public and, ultimately, bringing about changes in behaviour.

Through this project, the media, which have a key role in the success of the 2015 Paris Climate Conference, learn about the commitments made by the participating States, improve their knowledge of environmental issues and pass on the information in a format that can be understood by the general public.

The project also has another side: support for the media in investigative reporting on the subject of initiatives for adaptation to climate change. The reports, reflecting positive experiences implemented locally in Asia and Africa, will then be publicised alongside the 2015 Paris Conference Climate.

Actions

Covering a conference in line with the expectations of the target public groups

Web and radio journalists selected following a call for applications attend an international scientific conference entitled "Our Common Future Under Climate Change" in July 2015 to learn about climate change, refining their methodology and preparing interviews and profiles.

A second session, before and during COP21, provides journalists with the tools to understand negotiations and enables them to develop their network of experts. They place the spotlight on issues specific to the African continent and provide fair and balanced coverage of the proceedings.

Enhancing investigative journalism techniques on an environmental topic

Web journalists are trained in the techniques of reporting on scientific matters.
They are then guided as they prepare an investigative report on environmental issues concerning how people are adapting to climate change. The reports are regularly published by the online media involved and on the Media 21 platform.

Developing skills in the production of news programmes relating to climate change

Two training sessions for Malagasy radio stations help journalists learn more about and take on board issues relating to climate change.

Radio stations are encouraged to take into account traditional aspects and local customs to enable them to raise awareness of climate issues more effectively and encourage people to implement strategies for coping with them.

  • Coverage of a scientific conference to increase knowledge, and interviews with experts as part of the investigation conducted,
  • Training ahead of the 2015 Paris Climate Conference in how to pitch the investigations to be presented to other media

Presentation of the results of investigations during the COP21 conference

A communication campaign carried out for the 2015 Paris Climate Conference promotes the investigations conducted as part of this project.
