IRP Fellows Reporting from the COP22 Climate Change Conference in Morocco
The International Reporting Project (IRP) and the Stanley Foundation collaborated to bring five international journalists to Marrakech, Morocco to report on the Twenty-Second Conference of the Parties (COP22) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) from November 7-18, 2016.
Tomas Ayuso is a freelance reporter from Honduras.
Emma Bryce is a South African journalist who works as a freelancer in London.
Zachary Colman is the Washington DC-based deputy energy and environment editor for the Christian Science Monitor.
Sarah Kimani is a Kenyan journalist who reports for the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC).
Susan Phillips is a reporter for WHYY/NPR in Philadelphia.
COP22 followed on the heels of last year’s landmark climate conference in Paris, at which 195 nations agreed to limit global temperatures to, at most, 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The agreement, which had to be ratified by 55 countries pledging to reduce 55 percent of emissions, included the aspirational goal of reducing temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
The IRP fellows reported on news and developments at COP22, particularly in the context of the goals set forth in last year’s historic agreement. Fellows also explored regional climate change stories and participated in additional meetings and site visits organized by IRP.
