Earth Journalism Network (EJN) Grants 2021 on health impacts of climate change in the Bay of Bengal. Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN) calls a proposal from journalists to report on the impacts of climate change on human health along the Bay of Bengal coast in Bangladesh and India.

Earth Journalism Network encourages stories that report on potential solutions and address how vulnerable communities are responding to challenges. We are also highly interested in stories that utilize relevant data to illustrate the issue in a compelling and easy-to-understand way. They are also looking for stories with the potential to inform policy decisions.

The story grants are provided as part of EJN’s Bay of Bengal project, implemented by Internews with generous funding from the Climate Justice Resilience Fund. For the purposes of this grant call, EJN is basically accepting applications for reporting from coastal areas of Bangladesh and coastal areas of four Indian states—Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, and West Bengal.

Grants Funding

Earth Journalism Network expects to award five grants averaging $1,000, depending on the proposal and reporting format. Moreover, the grants will consider larger awards for in-depth stories using innovative or investigative approaches.
