GLOBE Mexico Forum.

IPS Latin America organized a journalists workshop as a contribution to the GLOBE International Forum, a network of parliamentarians that aims to agree common legislative responses to the major global environmental challenges. The training workshop was held on 6 December, in Mexico City, in parallel to the 16th Meeting of the Parties (COP16) on climate change in Cancun.

The workshop gathered professional journalists from India, China, South Africa, Brasil, Mexico, Russia, Argentina and Colombia interacting with international and Mexican climate change experts who provided information on the parliamentarians meeting and COP16, and debated about the role of communication in front of the challenges presented by climate change.

IPS Latin America organized the workshop with the support of the World Bank, COM+ the Alliance of Communicators for Sustainable Development, and the Italian Ministry for the Environment and Territory through the Multidonor Trust Fund on Climate Change Communications.tvcop16
