The Women in News (WIN) is pleased to launch the Social Impact Reporting Initiative (SIRI) for Climate Crisis Coverage to tell the story of how climate change is affecting vulnerable and at-risk groups in their communities. SIRI aims to shine a light on at-risk or vulnerable communities while also providing short-term relief to journalists that are facing acute financial stress. Since its launch last year, in exceptional cases, SIRI has been expanded to provide exceptional financial support to journalists in response to political or environmental crises.

SIRI Climate Change assignments are available to journalists of any medium, with the condition that they are no longer receiving a salary or, in the case of freelance journalists, have faced a loss of contract. The focus of the assignments should be on climate change, and its impact on vulnerable or at risk populations. All stories should be gender aware.
