Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is pleased to announce a new fellowship for journalists in the Asia-Pacific region interested in attending – and reporting from – the UN CBD 2022, both in-person and remotely. This fellowship opportunity is intended to enable journalists from the Asia-Pacific region to cover the UN CBD negotiations and COP15 for their home audiences.  

It will help journalists increase awareness of biodiversity issues and equip the public, policymakers and corporations with the information they need to address the drivers of biodiversity loss. This fellowship opportunity is made possible with the generous support of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). 

Selected Fellows will attend the CBD negotiating session for the Global Biodiversity Framework, in-person from 21-26 June 2022 in Nairobi, Kenya. Fellows will also have the opportunity to remotely cover the proceedings of the CBD COP15, to be held in Kunming, China, in August 2022.
