In our mission to improve the quantity and quality of environmental journalism, we’re bringing you new stories and information in an all new layout.

Rather than tell stories about the impacts of a changing climate that strike fear and paralysis in readers, how can we highlight ways that people around the world are responding to these problems? Covering solutions is one answer, and it was the motivating force behind a recent workshop hosted by Internews’ Earth Journalism Network and the Solutions Journalism Network.

This eight-part series explores what life is like for communities living on the edge in Vizag, a coastal town on the Bay of Bengal bearing many of the brunts of the climate change, including growing storm severity and sea-level rise.

Amid rising demand from oft-unwitting consumers, local greed in a failing economy, weak controls and corrupt law enforcement, the wild sturgeon stock along the Danube is being driven toward extinction.

This two-year project will focus on improving media coverage of conservation issues in East Africa, including wildlife trafficking and human and wildlife conflicts, through workshops that build reporting skills, story grants, stipends to support investigative reporting and roundtables for journalists working on investigative features.

Internews developed the Earth Journalism Network to enable journalists from developing countries to cover the environment more effectively. We are now a truly global network with around 9,000 members from 130 countries. To improve the quantity and quality of environmental reporting, we offer workshops and training materials, develop innovate environmental news sites, offer Fellowship programs and small reporting grants, establish and build up networks of environmental journalists and support local news production -- including ground-breaking investigative reports.
