The objective of the media sensitization sessions was to enhance the capabilities of journalists in reporting on climate change issues, initiatives and impacts through a fundamental understanding of the underlying issues associated with the phenomena, including its wide-ranging implications for society and what is being done to address it globally and particularly in Trinidad and Tobago.

Emphasis was placed on three themes surrounding climate change including:

(i) What is climate change?
(ii) What are the implications and impacts of climate change?
(iii) How do we respond and what is the way forward?

The report provides an overview on the sessions and hopefully offer guidance for other countries embarking on similar efforts.
