Deadline: 14 January 2018

Applications are open for the EJN Asia-Pacific Media Grants which are provided as part of the EJN Asia-Pacific project, implemented by Internews with the generous funding from Sweden / the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).

The Environmental 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 policy makers in the Asia and Pacific region.

Funding Information

The typical grant will be for up to US$20,000 and support a one-year project.

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.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Established media organizations, journalism networks, universities and journalism schools are welcome to apply.
  • The organizational grants can also be used to support the establishment of environmental journalism networks in places where they don’t exist.
  • In such cases, applicants should note their affiliations with existing media organizations, if applicable, or provide detailed plans about how this project would facilitate the creation of a new organization.
  • 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.
  • As Internews is a media development organization, EJN will not consider applications rooted in advocacy or political campaigning.
