“The journalists who turned the world upside down. Voices of another information” is the title of a book published recently in Italy telling the story of the Inter Press Service (IPS) news agency.
It is a patchwork story told by over one hundred journalists and key global players of the last 50 years.

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
