Journalists Urged To Give Focus To Climate Change Stories



Journalists have been urged to produce more stories on climate change amidst weather uncertainties in recent times.

Speaking to Peace News, Head of Institutional Development for Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA), Dora Boamah Mawutor, said although occasionally reports are made on climate change, it is prudent that priority is given to it.

She said most Ghanaians were not expecting to see major rains in March, yet it has been raining for the past few days and therefore the only way to keep people aware of climate change is to report on it often.

She made this known at the sidelines of a forum organised by the MFWA to certify the maiden cohorts of its Climate Change Journalism Fellowship (CCJF 2022) under the theme: ‘Confronting the Climate Change Crises in West Africa through Critical Journalism’.

Speaking at same event, Mr. John M. Allotey, CEO of the Forestry Commission said the fellowship has empowered the young journalists to understand issues of climate change and report on issues as and when it matters.

He urged the fellows to be courageous and fearless in the reportage of issues of climate change.
