The countries of Southeast Asia are all vastly different. Similarly, they face different challenges in energy development and reporting. Each of these beautiful countries are at contrasting stages with regard to their energy policies, narratives, and inclusion in media.
To get a better understanding of these challenges and ideas for potential solutions, we teamed up with media researchers and the Stanley Center for Peace and Security to engage in investigations into the media coverage of coal and renewables in the region.
Out of these investigations, we’ve published National Reports, hosted webinars, and streamed podcasts, all available here.
And now, we’re excited to share with you our Regional Report, available in 5 languages!
If you’ve questioned the media narratives that shape the national debates on energy transition in each country or would like to influence the narratives while enhancing the quality of energy reporting, then this report is for you!
We hope our report fills some of the knowledge gaps that exist as you dive into an analysis of energy-related media coverage in Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines.
We’d love to see this Report being used to instruct the development of effective interventions and actions, increase the understanding of how journalists engage with technical information on climate and energy, inform and improve framing for media engagement programmes, and provide an overview of one of the most pervasive fields of journalism.
