HEDA partners UNFCCC to train journalists for effective environmental reporting


- Advertisment -

Seye Joseph

Journalists covering environment had been called to participate in a one day training to build their capacity on the environment, climate change and agriculture for better delivery of their identified roles.

The training is organised by HEDA Resource Centre with The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and GCF accredited observer organisation and a leading environmental justice campaign platform in Nigeria.

In a release that was signed by the Executive Director of HEDA, Sulaiman Arigbabu said that the role of media in helping to mobilize public awareness and interest in these conversations cannot be over emphasized.

He said that the role of the media in helping government at national, states and local levels to better understand the issues involved and in keeping faith with any commitments made locally and internationally is equally critical to beaming attention on the need to address the threats posed by climate change to agriculture and the livelihoods of millions of women and men is a task that the media must take a lead on.

Arigbabu said further that the agriculture sector has been rightly identified as the most viable alternative for attaining economic emancipation, lifting millions of citizens out of unemployment, poverty and chronic hunger as climate change still poses grave threats to the nations agriculture sector and small scale farmers especially women, who produce majority of the food eating in the Country are most vulnerable to the adverse effect of climate change.

With this training, journalists will be exposed to what climate change is all about and some other basic information they need to know when it comes to covering environment and climate change.

Human and Environmental Development Agenda (HEDA) Resource Centre is a non-governmental and non-partisan human rights and development organization established in 2001 to provide leadership in advancing Human rights and environmental protection in public policy and programmes. It works with knowledge and information, including native intelligence and advocacy, as tools for ensuring accountable-governance, addressing poverty, and empowering local communities.
