The guide includes a section on "the basics," which explains the science of climate change, a portion where journalists that attended the UN Climate Change Conference in December, 2008, in Poznan, Poland, discuss the difficulties of reporting on complex environmental issues, as well as expert tips and insight on reporting on climate change.

Thirty-seven journalists from 28 developing countries attended the Conference for free throught the Climate Change Media Partnership (CCMP), set up by Panos, Internews and the International Institute for Environment and Development.
