Under the Pulitzer’s Our Work/Environment initiative, journalists have already highlighted the risks that rising temperatures pose to workers in various industries. Over the past two years, reporters have traveled to countries such as India, Nigeria, Ghana, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Uruguay, Paraguay, and South Africa to document how extreme heat and weather conditions impact some of the most vulnerable workers, including women who are often the primary breadwinners. We are particularly interested in stories that showcase the interconnectedness of business, climate, and consumer choices.
