The Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is offering reporting grants to journalists in India to support the production of in-depth stories on India’s Pathways to Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions.

This grant call is part of EJN’s Pathways to Net Zero in India and South Africa project. The project aims to increase the quality and quantity of net zero-related stories in the media, and build the capacity of journalists to improve their coverage of related topics.

EJN welcomes unique story ideas that focus on:

  • Opportunities to achieve net zero and challenges that may impede the country’s progress
  • Sectoral plans and policies in industries like transport, electricity, automotive, fuel, mining, agriculture and manufacturing;
  • Finance and capital investments, available and suitable technologies, and infrastructure;
  • Areas of potential growth and development in a green economy
  • The impact on marginalized communities most affected by decarbonization efforts

Applicants may explore in-depth features on labor and communities on the fringes of high-emitting industries; data projects on energy, finance, and markets as well as reports that highlight opportunities for previously disadvantaged groups and local economies.
