Philippines publishes new climate change guidebook

The recently released Klima 101: A Climate Change Guidebook for Philippine Journalists aims to help journalists and editors, including journalism teachers and trainers, to navigate and understand scientific issues better.

The book hopes to provide a clear idea of the nature of climate change, what types of data and information journalists need to write or produce a story particularly on the impact of climate change on agriculture and food security, how to report climate issues effectively, and how to influence decision-making in the process.

The guidebook represents a joint effort among scientists, communicators and journalists facilitated by CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change Agriculture and Food Security in Southeast Asia (CCAFS SEA), with the Department of Agriculture, the Philippine Network of Environmental Journalists and the Philippine Agricultural Journalists.
