The science is conclusive: climate change will disrupt the natural, economic and social systems we all depend on from global food security to infrastructure and jobs to health and well-being and biodiversity.
These impacts are unevenly distributed around the world, with some countries facing far greater risks than others. However, all countries, communities and companies will feel the effects of climate change. And some of the biggest risks for our society are the most difficult to understand. To meet this challenge, Climate Impacts Tracker Asia commits to publishing in-depth analysis and reports that connect climate science to climate change, with the goals of:
- Identifying the causes of climate change
- Reporting on climate change’s impact on a local and global scale, with a focus on communities and livelihoods
- Showcasing climate change mitigation, adaptation and solutions
We aim to engage our audiences by seeking out and crafting compelling stories and ensuring that they reach people and empower them to make a positive difference. Our approach to our work will include:
- Collaborate and support partner organisations
- Communicate narratives that support the science behind climate change and its impact
- Inspire our audiences to raise key questions and take action surrounding climate impacts
Climate Impacts Tracker Asia’s writers and editors strive to be driven by:
