In 2022, Klima Action Malaysia (KAMY) with the support of the European Climate Foundation (ECF), launched Lensa Iklim, a climate journalism and energy journalism program in Peninsula Malaysia that aims to upskill and empower Malaysian journalists and mainstream news media to improve climate change and energy transition reporting. The program now is supported by Tara Climate Foundation.

The gaps & challenges of Climate Journalism in Peninsula Malaysia

We conducted a research to investigate this phenomenon. We published a “Climate-Energy Transition Media Reporting in Peninsular Malaysia.” This report runs a data analysis on the climate and energy transition reporting of the news media in Peninsula Malaysia, with supporting analysis of the interviews from journalists and editors of various news media.

How Climate Lens aims to bridge the gap

Lensa Iklim was formed to empower journalists in Peninsula Malaysia in climate crisis and energy transition reporting. The long-term aim is to strengthen climate communication in Malaysia, under the Right to Information objective, thus increasing the public’s climate literacy. The programme also has a short-term goal to increase the capacity of journalists, in the news media and newsroom sector, in Peninsular Malaysia on climate crises specific to the energy sector and “Just Transition”. 

Resources from Lensa Iklim Workshops

Lensa Iklim successfully conducted its first series of workshops from June to August 2022, focusing on equipping journalists with knowledge on climate and energy transition topics, such as climate policies, governance, the IPCC report, and COP UNFCCC processes. We're excited to continue this capacity-building initiative with more sessions planned for 2023-2024.
