Top media fail to connect climate change, migration and food security

Paris, Brussels, December 8th, 2015 (SIGNIS/All Africa). Top news media are failing to identify climate change as a contributor to some of the world’s biggest crises, including migration, food insecurity and conflict, says a new research report funded by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and presented at the COP21.

"The media, whether local or global, are among the world’s most influential institutions and how they shape the climate change narrative remains vitally important," said IFAD President, Kanayo F. Nwanze, about why his organization sponsored the research. "If the world becomes aware of how climate change threatens our food security or why it is a catalyst for migration and conflict, then we can expect better support for policies and investments that can pre-empt future crises."

The report, "Food, Migration and Climate Change: The Untold Story," was prepared by Sam Dubberley, a journalist and Director of Kishnish Media Ltd. The research was conducted in September and includes an analysis of eight popular and highly influential news outlets in the United Kingdom and France, including the BBC, Channel 4, TF1, The Guardian, Daily Mail, Le Monde, Libération and France 2.
Dubberley explained, "We chose to conduct our research in September so that it wouldn’t be skewed by all of the reporting we’re seeing now because of the COP21 in Paris."
