INTERNATIONAL NEWS SERVICES CORRESPONDENT HONOURED OVER CLIMATE CHANGE REPORTSNovember 29th, 2019
INTERNATIONAL News Services’ Bangladesh correspondent A.Z.M Anas has won the Prince Albert II of Monaco and UNCA Global Prize for his coverage of the impact of climate change in his country. He was honoured for writing a series of articles on the grave environmental challenges facing his native Bangladesh.
It is especially vulnerable to climate change given much of the country is low lying, with its communities built on the deltas of the Brahmaputra and Ganges rivers. His articles have documented how climate change is causing alarming erosion and landslides contributing to economic dislocation and uncontrolled migration. INS editor Keith Nuthall said: “Abu has demonstrated again and again in his work for INS his ability and determination to dig deeper for important facts and analysis. He has applied these skills to this environmental reporting and has been rightly awarded this prize. We are delighted that he has been honoured in this way.”
