Agencia EFE and the World Bank have agreed to a partnership to boost coverage of climate change, inclusion and education in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The agreement aims to expand the dissemination of multimedia information to better understand the impact of climate change on communities in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as development projects that are helping to increase inclusion and improve access to education in the region.
In addition to generating content related to global warming, which threatens the region’s environmental balance, EFE will increase field production of content on equality and inclusion, especially of women and indigenous peoples. It will also focus on analyses of the quality of education, a pending issue on the region and key to promoting equality in a region with one of the widest social gaps in the world.
The agreement will strengthen the generation of quality multimedia content designed for younger audiences and the distribution of this information through the agency’s news channels, as part of the public service mission of both institutions. Some of the topics to be covered will be the contribution of women to the development of indigenous communities in the Amazon, inclusion in rural areas, access to education for the most vulnerable in Ecuador and Peru, and successful forest conservation projects in Mexico and Costa Rica.
