The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has warned of an increase in violence against and intimidation of journalists reporting on the environment and climate. The organization released a report on World Press Freedom Day, which found that at least 749 journalists and news media outlets reporting on environmental issues were targeted with violence, detention, or legal attacks between 2009 and 2023.
