EJN to provide 11 Grants of up to $20,000 each in 2018

Deadline: 14 January 2018

The Earth Journalism Network (EJN) through its latest call for proposals is going to provide 11 grants of up to $20,000 each in 2018.

The Earth Journalism Network (EJN) Asia-Pacific Media Grants are available to support the creation, growth, and capacity building of media and other environmental information generating organizations, that are aiming to improve the quantity and quality of news coverage of climate change, natural resources and the environment.

The aim of the EJN Asia-Pacific Media Grants is to strengthen the capacity of organizations to produce good quality and quantity of socio-environmental news and information to the vulnerable communities and policymakers in the Asia and Pacific region.

The EJN Asia-Pacific Media Grants are available to support the generation of media reports on climate change, environment and natural resource management issues, disseminate news and information to the most vulnerable communities and policymakers, and boost the voices of marginalised groups (women, youth and indigenous people) who are most at risk of climate change and environmental problems.

Through these grants, Internews intends to strengthen the capacity of organizations to report on and explain the drivers and impacts of environmental and climate change, along with the solutions that build resilience and prevent future crises.

Proposed activities should be designed to contribute towards at least one of the following outcomes:

Policy makers, people and communities have improved and reliable access to quality socio-environmental news and information;
Improved organizational capacity to report on socio-environment issues in an accurate and compelling way;
Improved organizational capacity to produce greater quantity and quality of socio-environmental news and information;
Reduced exclusion of marginalized groups in socio-environmental information;
Peer and multi-stakeholder engagement around socio-environmental issues.

Activities proposed should support socio-environmental reporting in the Asia and Pacific region – in particular South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific.
