The Third Pole is seeking pitches for stories from Southeast Asia (including mainland Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines), under the following themes:

– Electric power (renewables and fossil fuels)
– The environmental impacts of agriculture
– Infrastructure and extractives
– Waste and recycling
– Wildlife conservation and protected areas
– Tourism and SEZs
– The environmental and social impacts (positive or negative) of Chinese investment

Particular areas of interest include:

  • Environmental impacts of the Myanmar coup, including energy demand growth, conservation, logging and timber trade;
  • Environmental impacts (positive and negative) of Chinese investment in the Philippines;
  • Impacts of the transition to renewable energy, including extraction of critical minerals, unexpected side-effects of the energy transition, and efforts to mitigate them;
  • Environmental and social impacts of infrastructure mega-projects, from bridges and railways to dams, especially those with Chinese funding;
  • Positive examples of effective biodiversity conservation and climate adaptation, especially those which could be scaled up elsewhere;
  • Plastics and other waste;
  • Environmental impacts, positive and negative, of SEZs, including captive power.
