Funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), this round of grants from EJN’s Asia-Pacific program aims to support stories that explain to local communities how climate change impacts human health and illustrate how vulnerable communities are adapting.

Type of Stories

  • EJN is seeking data-driven or investigative stories in any country or countries within the Asia-Pacific region, with a particular emphasis on how women and other marginalized groups (including youth, indigenous people, ethnic minorities and people with disabilities) are impacted by climate and environmental change.
  • They encourage stories that report on potential solutions and address how vulnerable communities are responding to challenges. They are also interested in stories that utilize relevant data to illustrate the issue in a compelling and easy-to-understand way.
  • For the purposes of this grant call, they are accepting applications from South Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia and the Pacific region but not Australia or New Zealand. They are also unable to accept applications from Pakistan at this time.
