Earth Journalism Network Reporting Fellowships

Earth Journalism Network Reporting Fellowships; Earth Journalism Network 2019 Reporting Fellowships to the UNCCD COP14.

Indian and African Journalists can apply to report from the UN Convention to Combat Desertification COP 14 in New Delhi, India.

Earth Journalism Network has announced a fellowship program that will allow selected journalists to attend and cover the 14th conference of the parties (COP 14) to the UN convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD).

The UNCCD COP14 will be a key gathering to review progress made to control and reverse further loss of productive land from desertification, land degradation and drought.

A mix of representatives from national, regional and local governments, science and research communities, the private sector, international and non-governmental organizations and all forms of media are expected to address these issues during the two-week event.

As part of this Fellowship program, the 2019 group will comprise five selected journalists from Africa and India.

They are putting particular emphasis on selecting reporters from arid regions, or regions impacted by drought and desertification.

Fellows will attend the conference between 6-14 September, where they will engage with other participants and Fellowship program organizers in a series of specially designed activities that will include mentorship, an orientation workshop, breakfast briefings and interviews and sessions with high-level officials.

Amongst costs covered will be nonrefundable economy-class airfare, hotel, meals, and transportation both in-location and in transit.

They will also assist with the press accreditation process and provide other support services relating to travel. Please note that the process of obtaining any necessary visas is a Fellow’s responsibility; however, visa costs can be reimbursed.
