NEWS: South Asia Climate Change Award Fellowships 2012
Panos South Asia invites applications for the South Asia Climate Change Award (SACCA) Fellowships 2012.
The fellowships are being offered through a Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) funded project ‘Enhancing climate change awareness and understanding amongst journalists in South Asia’, managed by Panos South Asia with technical cooperation from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development
Applications are invited from print, television, radio and web journalists writing / reporting on climate change and environment issues from Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The fellowships will support writing / reporting stories on climate change from the region. The fellows will also have the opportunity to participate in a training workshop and field trip that will link them with their peers from the neighbouring countries and understand climate-related issues from a South Asian perspective.
