Journalist training on climate change held in Nepal

A journalist training workshop, held in Nepal, brought together about 20 different journalists from the region to improve their skills for communicating on climate change.

Nepal, February 2013 - GRID-Arendal Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP) and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) organized a journalist training workshop which brought together about 20 different journalists from Nepal, India, Pakistan and China. 

Over the six days of active training programme, the participants produced their stories, video, and photo features about climate change related subjects.  The workshop was facilitated by experienced senior reporters associated with international media (such as BBC, Financial Times) and Norwegian media outlets. It proved very productive and provided a basis for further cooperation.
