Communicating Science for Climate Action
Resources & Materials
The British High Commission Kuala Lumpur, supported by EcoKnights, has organised the ‘Communicating Science for Climate Action’ project to enhance understanding of science, particularly on the drivers and impact of climate change, as well as to accentuate the science and innovations available to tackle the issue.
From February to April 2021, five teams were selected to mobilise their climate action programs. They were tasked to develop and utilise effective science communication strategies to communicate climate change topics and IPCC report content to their respective targeted communities.
The following are the program outputs, outcomes and achievements from each team. You may click the links to review the content.

The Empowering Women of Kosuhui Village to Combat Climate Change project by KTCS is targeted at the women of Kosuhui Village. They wish to highlight that women are one of the key marine resource users that have the power to influence and educate the younger generation on environmental conservation and protection.
They have partnered with Blue Communities to implement this project, and have made substantial efforts to increase the communities’ awareness and understanding of climate change impact and adaptation in a local context.
