Earth Journalism Network announces the fellowship application for the UNCC COP14 2019. Moreover, EJN aims to empower and enable journalists from developing countries to cover the environment more effectively. Further, the UNCCD COP14 will be a key gathering to review progress made to control and reverse the further loss of productive land from desertification, land degradation, and drought. A mix of representatives from national, regional and local governments, science and research communities will address these issues. Also, the private sector, international and non-governmental organizations will also be participating in the two-week event.

As part of this Fellowship program, the 2019 group will comprise five selected journalists from Africa and India.

Fellows will attend the conference between 6-14 September, where they will engage with other participants and Fellowship program organizers in a series of specially designed activities that will include mentorship, an orientation workshop, breakfast briefings and interviews and sessions with high-level officials.
