IMI Publishes Monitoring Report on Coverage of the Environment

July 16 – Institute of Mass Information (IMI) published a new monitoring report on Friday called “What are Ukrainian Media Writing about the Environment?”

Major takeaways:

  • Water pollution is one of the top topics (15% of media stories tackling environmental issues). The stories are mostly about pollution of rivers (probably due to the fact that the monitoring was conducted during summer months, when heat encourages the growth of bacteria in the water).
  • The digital platform of UA:PBC is the leader in environmental reporting (17% of all environmental stories found during monitoring were on UA:PBC’s digital platform).
  • Most stories (68%) are about Ukraine, and 31% are about global environmental issues.
