Dear HIFA colleagues,
(with thanks to C4D Network)
Climate change is a major threat to global health and it is important that the public (as well as health workers and policymakers) are adequately informed. High-quality, unbiased reporting by the media is critical (and often/usually lacking).
Media development: Getting the Message Across : Reporting on Climate Change and Sustainable Development in Asia and the Pacific: A Handbook for Journalists (UNESCO, 2018) This Handbook has been customized for journalists to tell the climate change story specific to the region. It explores the essential aspects of climate change, including its injustices to vulnerable communities, especially women and girls and least developed countries, and provides examples of best practices and stories of hope unique to the region. It can be used as a resource for journalists to understand the science of climate change.
Best wishes, Neil
