Applications are open for the Climate Tracker Workshop 2023: Understanding Loss & Damage in LAC. For two months, 30 selected journalists will participate in 8 virtual meetings where they will seek to highlight how loss and damage resulting from climate change are exacerbating multifaceted and interrelated problems in the region, such as climate-induced migration, population displacement, food insecurity and other factors such as water scarcity, malnutrition and poverty.
The eight sessions are aimed at strengthening the capacities of Latin American journalists and will be distributed as follows:
- Foundations of climate science
- Introduction to Loss and Damage
- How to measure Damages and Losses in the region?
- Loss and Damage in the Climate Negotiations
- Financing Loss and Damage in Climate Negotiations
- Forced migration due to loss and damage in the region
- Non-economic and/or non-quantifiable losses
- The challenges of journalism in narrating loss and damage
In this way, the objective of this workshop is to deepen the theme of Loss and Damage in Latin America in a multidimensional way, addressing the technical aspects but also those related to the communication of the subject.
- Journalists from Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Honduras and Mexico.
- A strong desire to improve as a climate communicator/journalist, or to start integrating this perspective into your work.
The workshop will be held in eight sessions, from September 14 to November 7, virtually, through the Zoom platform.
To apply, they need your CV, highlighting your previous experience in journalism and answering why this is a necessary opportunity for your professional development as a journalist.
