Open Climate Reporting Initiative
The Open Climate Reporting Initiative (OCRI) is an initiative of the CIJ. It focuses on raising the standard of environmental investigations to enable thoroughly researched public interest reporting and evidence-based advocacy through training and skill-sharing with target audiences across six different regions between April 2022 and March 2024 for its first run. OCRI is providing the necessary tools, techniques and expertise to:
- Investigate and expose wrongdoing
- Research and quantify accurate pictures of the situation and the impact of other efforts
- Craft meaningful stories which garner support for changes in policy, regulation or economic actors’ decisions
Following a successful pilot in Nepal, three regions were covered for Year 1 (April 2022 to March 2023) of the project. They are Latin America (excluding Brazil), Anglophone Africa and Francophone Africa.
Brazil (and Lusophone Africa), South Asia and North Africa/Middle East (MENA) have been identified as the regions for Year 2 (April 2023 to March 2024). Read more.
