In Brief

About the project

The consequences of climate change and non-sustainable land use have rapidly accelerated land degradation in Africa in recent decades. Assertive and visible African positions and perspectives are needed – at the global, national and local levels – to overcome the associated social and ecological challenges. Professional media reporting can help encourage debates about land use among local populations and make it clear to them how important UN processes and decisions are for the local context. The funding provided to the media NGO Internews aims at supporting journalists from sub-Saharan Africa, enabling them to report in a well-founded manner about this year’s UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD COP15) in Côte d’Ivoire and on the UN Framwork Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC COP27) in Egypt.
