Activities

  • 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 policy makers, 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.
    • Particular attention should be given to the adaptation needs, challenges, efforts and success stories of vulnerable and marginalized communities.

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

  • NGOs and research institutes will also be considered, but only those with strong media and communication programs who are dedicated to support fair and accurate reporting.
