Reporting Climate Change
Climate change has brought the media under scrutiny about whether journalists are playing their part well in addressing this most contentious global issue. Experts assert that this is not just an environmental or some science story but more related to humanitarian disaster, world economy and international politics. Climate change activists and experts say that that a large portion of the world population is still not fully informed or educated enough to be alert about the risks faced by the earth. They say that the journalists should do more to educate people in their countries - both south and north. Panos Radio South Asia met up with climate change experts and journalists in Paris during the Broadcast Media and Climate Change Conference organized by UNESCO to discuss media's role in climate change in September. We spoke to Mike Shanahan, press officer of International Institute for Environment and Development of U-K; journalist Monjurul Ahsan Bulbul, head of A-T-N Bangla of Bangladesh; Joyeeta Gupta, professor of Climate Change Law and Policy at Institute for Environmental Studies in the Netherlands; Pema Choden, managing director of Bhutan Broadcasting Service from Bhutan; and Wijayananda Jayaweera, director of Communication Development Division of UNESCO in France.
