Climate Finance in Africa: Resources for Journalists

Climate finance could be a complex world of grants, funds, and investments. It’s often difficult to wrap our heads around the billions of dollars pledged, not pledged, delivered, not delivered.

African countries have received and spent a lot of money to help deal with the effects of climate change, protect tropical forests and reduce carbon emissions. But is the money going where it needs to? Are the right communities receiving assistance?

Want to get to grips with this? Investigate how much your country has received and spent? Find out if it goes where its needed? Its impact? Then these resources are for you!

As a follow up to part 1 of this training series for journalists, we’ve prepared a special collection of resources to help you understand and report on this critical issue.


Hear from experts and learn about tracking and reporting on the impacts of climate finance in African countries. Access the full webinar below.
