The special issue of the news service provides an essential guide for policy makers and environmental communication experts to research which provides insights into how we can communicate environmental issues effectively. The articles offer easy -to-read summaries of key studies in the field, to give a comprehensive view of the latest developments. They explore topics including: • What is the best way to engage the public with climate change? • How should scientific uncertainty be communicated to policy makers? • What are the implications of the media’s ‘dramatic’ portrayal of the relations between climate change and developing nations?
