PANOS PROJECTS

THE CLIMATE CHANGE MEDIA PARTNERSHIP

The Climate Change Media Partnership was a programme, from 2008 to 2012, spearheaded by Panos London, Internews and the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED).

The goal of the partnership was to increase the capacity of journalists in developing countries to report on climate change issues, widen understanding and stimulate debate about climate change and increase the number of stakeholders involved in decision-making.

the CCMP ran a journalism fellowship programme which to date has supported 80 fellows in print, radio, electronic and TV media from across 42 countries in Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America. In this section, you will find a selection of features originally printed on the Panos London Website.

Although the Panos Network is not currently involved, the Climate Change Media Partnershiplives on, through the Earth Journalism Network.

REPORTING TAX RESEARCH IN KENYA

Panos London and Panos Eastern Africa worked with two main partners to convene a workshop for researchers, CSOs and Kenyan media representatives at Lake Naivasha in Kenya on 15–17 November 2009.

The purpose of the workshop was to build the capacity of all three groups – researchers, media and CSOs – to interact productively to increase coverage of tax and governance issues in the Kenyan media. Another workshop aim was to help establish a forum or network of collaborators in the East Africa region to assure continued debate and coverage of these issues.

The workshop resulted in increased media coverage, with research adding depth to the reporting – and the establishment of the East Africa Tax and Governance Network.

Panos partnered with CommGAP, a global programme at the World Bank to promote the use of communication in governance reform programmes; with the Centre for the Future State (CFS), based at the Institute of Development Studies, in the United Kingdom. The UK Department for International Development (DFID) and CommGAP provided funding for the workshop.

DESERT VOICES:
ETHIOPIA & SUDAN

This oral testimony project records life stories from the people living in the deserts of Ethiopia and Sudan.

The testimonies from Sudan leave you in no doubt of the devastation brought by desertification. The loss of their animals and dramatic decline in crops has left whole villages dependant on migrant labour.

The narrators in the Ethiopia collection are all Boran, part of the larger Oromo ethnic group. Formerly nomadic pastoralists, they have in recent decades combined agriculture with animal rearing, partly at government instigation, and partly because of the decreasing viability of livestock herding as a livelihood.
