BANGKOK – IPS Asia-Pacific is seeking contributions from Asian journalists for its series on  ‘Climate Change: A Reporting Lens from Asia’ in the Asian development context, with deadline for story applications on 20 March 2012.

While stories on climate change hog the headlines when global summits about them are underway, the impact of climate change and ways of coping with it continues outside those high-profile events and may affect life as we know it. Read more »

Inter Press Service (IPS) has assembled a contingent of largely African journalists to report from the “African COP” – COP 17 in Durban, South Africa. The team will produce daily features, analysis and podcasts for TerraViva and material in English, Spanish and French for IPS’s global news service and Tierramérica.

Follow the team’s coverage in real-time on Twitter at @ipsenvironment and @ipsafrica and connect with IPS Environment and IPS Africa on Facebook.

IPS reporting will reflect the agency’s focus on the South and the role of civil society, with particular emphasis on the activity of non-governmental organisations, adaptation in poor countries and the gender dimensions of climate change.

The COP17 TerraViva site has a useful archive that looks back to IPS coverage of previous COP conferences. Finally, the coverage from South Africa is linked out to the concurrent negotiations in South Korea about Aid Effectiveness and the preceding Global Civil Society Forum, where IPS has a reporting team preparing a Busan TerraViva

Inter Press Service (IPS) is sending a team of reporters from Africa and South Asia to report on the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan, South Korea, and the Global Civil Society Forum that precedes it. The team will produce daily features and analysis for an IPS TerraViva online site in English and Spanish and in several Asian languages. Selected reports will feature in IPS’s global news service.

Follow the team’s coverage in real time on Twitter at @ipsnews and connect with IPS news on Facebook.

IPS reporting will reflect the agency’s focus on the South and the emergence of South-South co-operation as a powerful dimension of the aid effectiveness debate. Civil society, participating as full partners in the HLF4, and the gender perspective, will be prominent in the reporting.

The Busan TerraViva site has a useful archive that looks back to IPS coverage of previous HLFs and other international financing for development meetings. Finally, the coverage from South Korea is linked out to the concurrent negotiations in South Africa about climate change, where IPS has an African-led reporting team preparing a Durban TerraViva.
