The Earth Journalism Network (EJN) has launched its Story Grants 2022 for journalists worldwide to support the production of in-depth stories that will call attention to coastal resiliency and solutions for coastal issues.

EJN is offering 15 story grants with support from the Kingfisher Foundation to journalists to cover coastal resilience in their communities. These journalists will receive support from journalist mentors and a coastal resilience expert to increase media coverage of this critical issue in their region. EJN welcomes any story ideas that will explore coastal resilience issues, including ecosystem rehabilitation, livelihood and food security, shelter and infrastructure, land use and development, managed retreat and more. They are particularly interested in cross-border collaborations and stories that explore similar efforts and shared solutions (including living shorelines, reef and island restoration and more) across regions.
