Do you know that some of Indonesia’s largest media conglomerates have financial stakes in the coal mining industry? Or that energy reporting in the Philippines differs drastically between the greater Manilla region and the more remote Mindanao? How about the fact that a new government took power in Malaysia in 2018 and ushered in an era of liberalization for the press and the energy market
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 Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines 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.
