The GroundTruth Project is an independent, nonprofit media organization supporting a new generation of journalists to tell the most important stories of their generation. GroundTruth fellowships center on issues of social justice that matter for an increasingly interconnected world, including human rights, freedom of expression, emerging democracies, the environment, religious affairs and global health. “A Climate for Conflict” is part of GroundTruth’s immersive series “Living Proof: The Human Toll of Climate Change” that explores how the price of global warming is rising in unexpected, human ways. In the past year, GroundTruth has been recognized with a National Edward R. Murrow Award, an Alfred I. DuPont-Colombia University Award and an Overseas Press Club Award.
