Third Pole Story Fund
The Third Pole (www.thethirdpole.net) and Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN), provide opportunities for journalists to produce data-driven stories that highlight issues of water and climate change in Hindu Kush Himalayas. These fellowships are intended to support journalists who have an interest in multimedia and data visualization but lack adequate funding for research and field trips.
Each of the journalists under fellowship worked directly with EJN staff who provided assistance to obtain datasets, prepare story lines around the issues and advise on visualization techniques. In 2015, the first year of this program, fellowships were provided to five journalists who came from four countries—India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
