The UN convention on Climate Change (COP23) conference in Bonn in November, co-chaired by Fiji, is expected to be a rich resource of research outputs. This edition will be produced in collaboration with IKAT research journal of Universitas Gadjah Mada. Papers can include but are not restricted to:

+ Climate crisis and journalism strategies

+ Disaster survivor narratives and storytelling
