Do you know that some editors and journalists in Vietnam believe that it is their duty to advocate for a clean energy transition and are willing to criticize government policies despite being literally owned by the government? How about this - Thai media is very keen on covering community opposition to power plants. It also played a big role in bringing about a coal moratorium in northern provinces.
Welcome to Climate Tracker Specials Asia - a new podcast series that will take a deep dive into the media industry in the region.
In this episode, Mai Hoang from the Climate Tracker Network talks to media researchers from Vietnam and Thailand on how news outlets in the countries are covering coal and renewables.
This is part of Climate Tracker's most ambitious media research project so far, supported by the Stanley Center for Peace and Security.
