This year’s 24 South Asia Climate Change Award (SACCA) fellows have been selected by a panel of experts after careful consideration of nearly seventy applications from all forms of media from six countries in South Asia.

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.

Weightage was given to form of media, gender and language to ensure a judicious mix. PSA’s SACCA fellowships are being offered as part of a CDKN project for enhancing climate change awareness and understanding among journalists in South Asia. The project, which is currently in its second phase, has already produced quality new climate change reporting across the region. Many of these stories have also been featured on CDKN’s Asia website page.
