NPR sends ‘team of journalists’ around the globe ‘to see how climate change, migration, & the rise of the far-right weave together’

Travel diary: Tracking climate, migration and the far-right from Africa to Europe

Published October 4, 2022

Welcome to the travel blog for a new NPR project looking at how the ripples of climate change are radiating outward.

We’re a team of journalists traveling from Senegal to Morocco to Spain throughout October to see how climate change, migration, and the rise of the far-right weave together. (You can read more about the project origins here)

For the next three weeks, we will post daily news, photos, videos and behind-the-scenes updates from the whole team, led by All Things Considered host Ari Shapiro.

And if you have any questions you would like us to answer, please fill out our form and we will post the response right here in this blog.


How climate change, migration and xenophobic politics are linked

What is the connection between climate change, the movement of people around the globe, and the rise of xenophobic politicians? That’s the overarching question we’re hoping to answer with this reporting trip.
