‘Climate change’ gets many column inches and a lot of space in different media in Asia-Pacific, but much of this reportage focuses on events like global summitry and negotiations, or disasters attributed to climate change. Too little coverage goes to developing creative, in-depth and multi-dimensional stories around specific aspects most relevant to developing Asia – and in particular to the impact of climate change on rural communities.

This training workshop aims to highlight covering climate change as a development story – by creating a venue both for discussing climate change as a development reality for rural communities, and for discussing it in a newsroom environment in order to tell better, more effective stories around it linked to everyday lives.
