Our report offers fresh insights on climate news consumption patterns in France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States, Brazil, India and Pakistan, all of which contend with the profound impacts of climate change. It is a unique piece of research as it covers key countries in the Global South and provides insights for both journalists and policymakers on the intersections between health, politics, climate justice, and the news media.
