Open Climate Reporting Initiative
The Open Climate Reporting Initiative (OCRI) is a new initiative from 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. OCRI will provide 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
Three regions have been identified for Year 1 (April 2022 to March 2023) of the project. They are Latin America (excluding Brazil), Anglophone Africa and Francophone Africa. Read more.
