In a warming world, developing countries are being hit hard by drought, storms and sea level rise. Their effort to develop energy resources is increasingly complicated by a choice between cheap fossil fuels and more expensive clean energy. With political strife and economic woes often taking precedence over environmental issues, journalists, in partnership with Internews' Earth Journalism Network, are stepping up to fill the information gap and tell the stories of climate change. Join journalists representing Brazil, China, Nigeria and the Philippines for an in-depth conversation on the trials and triumphs of environmental journalism in the developing world.
