The Regional training workshop for journalists: strengthening reporting on adaptation to climate change for relevant policy approaches was organised from 28 September–3 October 2015 in Kathmandu, Nepal. The workshop was organised by GRID-Arendal, Norway and ICIMOD under the Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP) http://www.icimod.org/hicap.

The workshop brought together fifteen independent journalists from television, radio, print and web from China, India, Nepal and Pakistan. Seven women and eight men were selected from an application pool of over eighty applicants. The workshop focussed on climate-related environmental issues, with a special regard to adaptation measures.

Over a week-long period, the participating journalists interacted with thematic experts from ICIMOD and partner institutes, government officials, local stakeholders, and community stalwarts. They also underwent a dedicated session on interacting and engaging with senior policy advisors and policy makers on relevant aspects. An editorial roundtable with editors from leading publishing houses in Nepal, focussed on pitches and story angles that journalists could consider, while penning on dense issues like climate change.

The participants also spent time in the field visiting ICIMOD’s ongoing implementation of climate smart villages, and action research site on adaptive capacity in Kavrepalanchok District, facilitated by international facilitators and resource persons from ICIMOD, GRID-Arendal, CEAPRED and DeKMIS.
