4th Media Summit on Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction
The one and a half day ABU Media CCDRR Summit will focus on:

  • Climate Change Threats to Pacific Nations.
  • Weather Reporting and Climate Change Education.
  • Climate Change and Disaster Literacy through Media.

An exciting part of the CCDRR Summit will be the Gala Awards on 6 February 2018, which will announce the winners of the 2018 ABU Awards on Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction.

Pacific Media Partnership Conference
The 9th meeting of the Pacific Media Partnership will ramp up the vital work of addressing the major media issues for broadcasters, new media and partners in the Pacific Islands region in a co-operative and practical manner.

These key issues that broadcasters in the region have identified will include:

  • Digital transformation: tailoring solutions for all broadcasters, large and small.
  • Content development on a budget: making and sharing program content efficiently and effectively.
  • Shattering the glass barrier: how broadcasters can move beyond the TV screen to use mobile technologies and social media to engage audiences as producers and consumers.

A special feature of this year’s Pacific Media Partnership Conference for TV and radio broadcasters will be masterclass workshops on using mobile technologies in news, documentaries and other story telling – how we can do it and why.
