Online journalist training on climate change reportingFuture Climate for Africa, together with leading experts from BBC Media Action and NECJOGHA, hosted an online climate change journalist training on 5, 7 and 9 October for African journalists. The aim of the training was to increase journalists’ understanding of climate change and their capacity to report on climate change issues in Africa. There was an overwhelming response to the training with over 200 journalists from across Africa applying. This high demand indicates the great need and interest for capacity development activities for journalists on climate change and as a result, FCFA is planning to host a few repeat trainings to ensure wider reach.
