In conjunction with World Environment Day on 5th
June, Science Media Centre (SMC) Malaysia has announced the launch of PANAS!, Malaysia’s digital toolkit targeted towards Malaysian journalists, writers, and content makers with an interest in reporting on environmental and climate change topics. In collaboration with the British High Commission Kuala Lumpur and EcoKnights, PANAS! digital toolkit aims to provide an overview of the impact of climate change in Malaysia, a list of important resources such as local and international climate action initiatives, potential experts / spokespersons, and useful tips in writing climate change stories in the media. It provides guidance and resources for journalists covering climate change topics by referencing the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change. Apart from highlighting the considerations when reporting on climate change issues, the digital toolkit also includes important resources such as a listing of scientists and spokespersons on climate change-related topics and local climate action initiatives in Malaysia.
