There is a need for better understanding of climate change, in particular over Africa as it is one of the most vulnerable continents. The media and journalists play an integral knowledge broker role in reporting on climate impacts and solutions and helping decision-makers and communities to better understand these. Impactful and locally relevant climate change stories can empower positive change and shift behaviour. However, climate change is a complex issue to communicate, with many journalists struggling to accurately report on it.
Recognising this, the Coordination, Capacity Development and Knowledge Exchange unit (CCKE) of FCFA have initiated a number of activities and opportunities for journalists.
