The Climate Story: Connecting The Dots

Webinar Summary
For free

At the ‘Climate Story: Connecting the Dots web discussion, a mix of participants -
journalists from Southeast Asia, climate advocates, communications and development
professionals - exchanged insights about the overarching climate story that, in truth,
supersedes all stories today. How to tell this story better, and the need for a Southeast
Asian perspective in reporting the impacts and human toll of the climate crisis were the
key threads that ran though this conversation.

The 14 November 2023 event was organized by the Reporting Asean series (with Probe
Media Foundation Inc as host) in collaboration with the Heinrich Boell Foundation
Southeast Asia Regional Office.

Two events in November provided a timely backdrop to this discussion of the need for a
climate-proficient lens in the news - the 10th anniversary of Typhoon Haiyan, one of the
most powerful tropical cyclones ever recorded, and the start of the 28th meeting of
parties to the UN Framework on Climate Change, the COP-28 in the United Arab
Emirates. Haiyan ravaged parts of the Philippines in 14 November 2013, and COP-28
started on 28 November 2023.

Highlights from the discussion are found in the summary below.
