Climate Accountability

Read this article in

Today, there is plenty of beat reporting and feature writing about the world’s climate crisis. But what’s missing are the investigative journalists, the ones who follow the money and hold corporations and governments accountable for what they have done – and what they haven’t done. GIJN is working to change this.

Our Climate Accountability Project launched with two reporter’s guides in 2022 – one on investigating sea level rise and the other on investigating methane emissions. Both guides offer journalists practical tips on where to find data and sources, with past investigations for inspiration. We’ve joined the guides with a series of workshops, including a full-day strategy session at our Global Conference, which will set an investigative agenda for journalists working on the climate crisis.
