the International Reporting Project (IRP) is pleased to offer up to five international reporting fellowships to cover the 2016 UN climate change conference in Marrakech, Morocco.
The Twenty-Second Conference of the Parties (COP22) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will take place from November 7-18. COP22 follows on the heels of last year’s landmark climate conference in Paris, at which 195 nations agreed to limit global temperatures to, at most, 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The agreement, which must be ratified by 55 countries pledging to reduce 55 percent of emissions, further included the aspirational goal of reducing temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
- IRP will purchase the fellows’ round-trip air tickets to Morocco and will pay for visas, hotel costs, local transportation and several group meals.
- The IRP will also arrange journalists’ press accreditation for the conference
- Fellows who wish to extend their stay beyond the dates of the conference will have the option to arrange that at their own expense.
- These fellowships are open to professional international journalists with significant experience covering environment and climate change.
DEADLINE: September 21 2016
