New York Times and The Times-Picayune form coastal reporting partnership
The Times-Picayune and The New York Times have begun a partnership that will explore the causes and potentially catastrophic effects of coastal erosion and sea level rise along the Louisiana coast.
The reporting collaboration will combine the resources of two environmental reporting initiatives announced earlier this year: The Times-Picayune's Louisiana coastal reporting team, made possible in part by the Fund for Environmental Journalism, a grant-making program of the Society of Environmental Journalists; and The New York Times' climate team, which focuses visual, explanatory and investigative journalism on the calamities caused by climate change around the world.
Content produced by the partnership will appear jointly in both companies' newspapers and on their digital platforms, NOLA.com and nytimes.com, this year. In addition, the partnership plans to produce a documentary film and host a conference that brings international thought leaders in climate change and coastal erosion to New Orleans during its tricentennial year of 2018.
