Meet our 5 new Caribbean Climate Resource Grantees!

These grants will provide our grantees with the means to develop content, tools, and resources that benefit the local and regional community.

🌴📢 In partnership with Open Society Foundations, we are awarding 5 grants to encourage journalists, media professionals, communicators, and content creators to produce climate justice resources. These resources aim to aid the Caribbean media and activism community in comprehending and championing climate justice communications and reporting across the region.

Through these grants, we aim to provide our recipients with the means to develop content, tools, and resources that benefit the local and regional community.


The Caribbean is being impacted by increased intensity and frequency of hurricanes and tropical storms, rising sea levels, coral bleaching, drought, and water scarcity, just to name a few. 🌀 Given these challenges, the creation of climate justice resources is crucial to raising awareness, empowering communities to take action, and advocating for policies that address the root causes of climate change and its impacts on vulnerable populations in the Caribbean. 🌱

We are excited to unveil the recipients of the second round of our Caribbean Community Climate Resource Grant. Prepare to be inspired by their impactful creations. 🌍👩‍💻🎉

Ryan Bachoo is a multimedia journalist with CNC3 Television in Trinidad and Tobago. He covered COP26 remotely, he would go on to attend COP27 as a Climate Tracker. His passion for covering the unfolding events surrounding climate change has led him to seek support to attend COP28 which he has succeeded in doing. He hopes to amplify the impact of climate change on the region.

“With Trinidad and Tobago suffering the effects of climate change, there are already citizens who are being impacted without actually knowing it. This is why I believe climate justice is not only an important story to tell to the people of this country but it is also important we fight for climate justice.” Ryan Bachoo

Tamoy Campbell is a student studying law at the tertiary level. Her love for law and media is her passion. She believes in using the law as a tool for social impact, empowerment, and change. Concerning the media, she can be found on our TV screens or moderating panels when she is not reading loads of cases.

“Climate justice is not spoken about enough and marginalised people in the Caribbean are not adequately supported especially since they face the brunt of climate-related incidents.” – Tamoy Campbell

Hanan Lachmansingh is an intersectional environmentalist deeply committed to conservation, with a particular interest in biomimicry, tropical fieldwork, and the sustainable development of Guyana. She is dedicated to learning more about how inequality impacts conservation and gender development in Guyana. And at the end of a long day, Hanan loves getting lost in a good book.

“Climate justice is important for Guyana because of several reasons. Firstly our vulnerability to the impacts of climate change. Guyana is below sea level and this places us at even more risk of natural disasters such as flooding and the health issues that are associated with it. Guyana has 9 Indigenous tribes all of whom have a unique relationship with their environments. Climate justice is important to protect their rights and traditional knowledge while ensuring they are not disproportionately affected by climate change. And to ensure their voices and local communities’ voices are heard.” – Hanan Lachmansingh

Dominique Noralez is a writer and youth development practitioner with a fervent passion for social justice. Her writing focuses on art and politics across the areas of gender, race, and anti-colonialism with a special focus on the global south experience. Dominique’s work is influenced by her upbringing in the heart of Belize City- the first capital of her home country, Belize.

“Climate justice is particularly important for every post-colonial society because we all share distinct features that make us particularly vulnerable to the ravages of rapid climate change. In Belize, given several concurrent issues related to a challenge to her territorial integrity, ongoing climatic threat to her barrier reef, the increasing urbanization spurred by an unbalanced economic focus on tourism and even less direct issues like food security, climate justice truly sits at the core of ensuring that people are not left to battle an intangible but quickly palpable issue alone.” – Dominique Noralez

Alexandra Pierre is a PhD candidate on geography and climate change from the beautiful island of Haiti, struggling with political instability. She is an environmental activist and recipient of numerous awards and grants. She is tremendously passionate about marine conservation, which has become a job and a field of research.

“Climate justice is important for Haiti because the voice of the local populations on the management of decreasing natural resources and the national response to increasing climate related natural disasters matters.” – Alexandra Pierre

Together, these dynamic individuals will contribute to our community, enriching our collective understanding and advocacy for a more sustainable future.

Stay tuned to their journey! 🌊🌿 #climatetrackercaribbean 📝🎤

Climate Tracker (CT) is an international non-profit organisation, aiming to support, train and incentivise better climate journalism globally. We believe in the power of journalism but recognise that many young journalists don’t have the training, resources or support to identify and tell the climate stories they want to. We also recognise that this challenge is often greatest in the countries hardest hit by climate change. To address this, we:

  • Provide training and fellowships for young journalists around the world to tell better climate stories locally
  • Conduct action-oriented media research to better understand the biggest challenges,  trends, and obstacles to powerful climate reporting around the world
  • Fund young journalists to report on the world’s most pressing issues and cover the world’s biggest moments, UN negotiations and conferences 
  • Support global collaborations between young climate journalists, newsrooms and NGOs around the world
