Panel: Data for Climate Justice

Data is fundamental to understanding climate change and the paths to action, from identifying problems to mitigation and adaptation measures in cities. But what data is available for this, and which realities and people does it apply to?

In this panel at the Coda.Br Conference, Open Knowledge Brasil is bringing together voices from science, journalism and civil society to address the challenges for data-driven journalistic coverage and advocacy on climate issues that consider the inequalities in Brazil and the Global South in a larger context.

Class duration: 1.30 hours

Referred as the main data journalism event in Latin America, the 8th edition of the Brazilian Conference on Data Journalism and Digital Methods (Coda.Br) holds 18 and 19 November 2023 on the Álvaro Alvim Campus, São Paulo. It features tracks of workshops, panels, keynote, flash presentation sessions as well as networking opportunities for participants. The Open Climate Reporting Initiative (OCRI) will be present at five activities.
