CLIMATE CHANGE AND POPULATION CONNECT

Population should be discussed in conjunction with climate change more often, which is why the article "Global Warming Policy: Is population left out in the cold?" caught our attention. Published in the prestigious Science magazine, the article addresses four misperceptions about population that the authors feel confound the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The analysis of these misperceptions and the conclusions by the authors are ones PMC whole-heartedly welcomes.

HAPPENING NOW: TRAINING IN ZAMBIA

Two months ago, we formally announced PMC's inaugural work in Zambia, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) with support from the Bergstrom Foundation. This week, an intensive training for Zambian writers began in Lusaka, the Zambian capital  a meld of research, methodology, and creativity. The training is for two separate writing teams  one for a show in the local language of Bemba and one in Lozi. Both shows will be 156 episodes.
