TRAINING & CAPACITY BUILDING

Supporting communities, governments and change makers to implement Locally Led Adaptation approaches.

100 Voices of the Vulnerable

In 2023, the GCA and BBC Media Action trained 40 journalists and 20 young people from Bangladesh to report on locally led adaptation.

The trainees asked 100 people living on the frontlines of climate change in north and south-west Bangladesh what climate change means to them. These testimonies highlight the challenges of frontline communities, and their innovations to adapt.

Journalists and communicators are welcome to use these clips in your coverage of climate change. Please don't forget to tag/ acknowledge us if you do, and let us know so we can keep track.

We will be grateful if you credit the producers, to encourage them in their work, and GCA and BBC Media Action.

MEDIA’S ROLE IN GIVING VOICE TO THE VULNERABLE

Research by BBC Media Action in Bangladesh in 2023 revealed that adaptation efforts by communities and individuals are often not reported or communicated.  Media coverage is mainly focused on climate disasters and the international climate negotiations. In 2023, we teamed up with BBC Media Action to train journalists on reporting local efforts by communities to tackle the impacts of climate change.

Media

The media, with its reach and influence, has a critical role to play in bridging the gap between individuals on the frontlines, already dealing with climate impacts, and national and global policymakers with the power to support them meaningfully. Equally, local actors need to be informed of national and global support for their adaptation efforts. The media can help cross-fertilize locally led adaptation solutions between communities across the world who face the same climate threats.

Changemakers

Global, national, and local efforts to address the climate emergency need to be informed by the struggles, challenges, and triumphs of people at the frontlines. The media can help to bridge the current gap, but how can you “sell” your story to the media?
