E-learning course on reporting climate change and humanitarian emergencies

Reuters AlertNet offers an e-learning course designed to help journalists connect the dots between climate change and humanitarian emergencies. The course includes the following topics:

-General themes: the science behind it, sourcing accurate statistics, and thinking about winners and losers.
-Humanitarian angles: the implications of climate-related disasters; key questions to ask.
-Climate and energy: the implications of growing energy demand from developing countries.

Each module consists of a series of multiple-choice questions, followed by a brief explanation of the subject covered in the questions, and resources related to the subject. The entire course takes about 45 minutes to complete.
