4 to 5 September 2009: UNESCO, in partnership with UNEP, organized an International Conference on ‘Broadcast Media and Climate Change: A Public Service Remit'.
The Conference brought together more than 250 representatives of national broadcasters from both developing and developed countries, scientific organizations, regional broadcasting associations and unions, and climate-related agencies. They explored current coverage of climate change issues in different regions of the world and the challenges being faced by broadcasters, in particular those from the developing countries.
As a result of this event, international and regional broadcasting unions have decided to increase cooperation in order to give media exposure to climate change.
Please note that the recordings of the sessions (10 Betacam cassettes), as well as the photo CD that accompany them, are only available on demand.
