Sajid Manzoor, Arshad Ali


Climate change is a high matter of concern for every living being on this planet earth. This research paper explores the perception of Pakistani journalists related to media and climate coverage issues in Pakistan. The results of this paper are based on ten qualitative interviews of the journalists purposively selected from mainstream media in Pakistan covering climate issues. The journalists were of the opinion that lack of resources, old equipment, and poor human skill result in faulty measurements and information which leads to drawbacks in reporting authentic climate change. But fortunately, the actors associated with climate journalism are very well aware of their responsibilities and role.
