UN-based media organization launches UNEARTH News

“In UNEARTH News you should highlight what developing countries are doing in terms of dealing with coastal management, forestry, agriculture, ocean management, and renewable energy,” Acharya added.

In 2011, MediaGlobal was the Winner of the 2011 Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation/United Nations Correspondents Association Award for excellence in journalism for its reporting on the impact of climate change in the world’s least developed countries. UNEARTH News will continue this work with deeper focus.

“Primarily, we cover the countries in the developing world,” said Executive Director and UN Bureau Chief Nosh Nalavala. “It’s a niche we have created and it is in keeping up with the United Nations mandate that Climate Change ‘is the major, overriding environmental issue of our time’ and the single greatest challenge facing environmental regulators.”
