Climate Radar_ is a specialized, digital report on the media coverage concerning climate change in Latin America, which includes a graphical analysis and addresses the question of how 25 media cover the topic month by month. For this, the following countries are taken into account: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.

How does it work?

Climate Radar uses the first software developed in Latin America in order to quantitatively analyze the news on climate change, supplemented by a qualitative analysis by a group of experts. Climate Radar considers two types of messages: those that focus on climate change and those that mention them only within a wider context.

In addition, the analysis identifies the issues related to climate change that are more widespread in the media, underlining the most mentioned key words, rescuing the four news that marked the trend and highlighting successful cases of coverage on climate change.

Climate Radar is a product of ConexiónCOP, developed by the Peruvian consulting firm Libélula, with the support of the Regional Programme Energy Security and Climate Change in Latin America (EKLA) of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS).
