Rappler’s Pia Ranada chosen for UN climate summit fellowship in Glasgow

ON TO GLASGOW. Malacañang reporter Pia Ranada covers COP26 in Glasgow.

As a 2021 CCMP fellow, reporter Pia Ranada will report from Glasgow on the ongoing COP26 and what it means for the Philippines

Rappler senior reporter Pia Ranada was selected for a fellowship allowing her to cover the landmark United Nations climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland.

The program, called the Climate Change Media Partnership Reporting Fellowship, brings 20 journalists from developing countries to cover the conference, known as COP26 (26th Conference of Parties).

The fellowship, now in its 15th year, was launched in 2007 and has brought 350 journalists to the annual UN climate conferences. This year, it is led by Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN) and the Stanley Center for Peace and Security.

Ranada is one of only two Filipina journalists chosen, the other being Gaea Cabico of PhilStar.com. The 20 fellows were chosen from 400 applicants worldwide.

Here is the full list of 2021 CCMP Fellows:

  • Albert Oppong-Ansah, Ghana News Agency (Ghana)
  • Daniel Kaburu, K24 TV (Kenya)
  • Isaac Anyaogu, BusinessDay Media Ltd (Nigeria)
  • Elfredah Kevin-Alerechi, Peoples Gazette (Nigeria)
  • Aïda Delpuech, Inkyfada (Tunisia)

  • Sibi Arasu, Livemint (India)
  • Yunanto Wiji Utomo, Kompas.com (Indonesia)
  • Baktygul Chynybaeva, Azattyk Media (Kyrgyzstan)

  • Adriana Souza, CNN Brasil (Brazil)
  • Jéssica Maes, Folha de S.Paulo (Brazil)
  • María Mónica Monsalve Sanchez, El Espectador (Colombia)

The fellowship means Ranada will physically report from Glasgow from November 4 until 12, the day when COP26 is set to conclude.

Ranada has covered climate change and environmental issues since 2012. In 2016, she shifted focus to political reporting, becoming Rappler’s Malacañang reporter. But climate change was never far from her political beat since the Climate Change Commission is under the Office of the President and is, by law, chaired by the Philippine President.
