JAMFEST Panel: How can we get more climate reporting into newsrooms?
October 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Session Format: Panel Discussion
Host: Jamlab Africa
Moderator: Dr Dinesh Balliah, Wits Center for Journalism, Director

Research compiled by Dr. Enoc Sithole found that newsrooms in the Global South need adequate climate change reporting. For newsrooms that have climate reporting, it is reported from a high-level decree and fails to inform how it affects the man on the street, while some report on climate issues about the Global North and fail to tailor the problems for Africa.
