Farai Shawn Matiashe is an award-winning journalist based in Mutare, Zimbabwe who writes for various international media outlets including Aljazeera (Qatar), the Thomson Reuters Foundation (UK), Vice World News (UK), The Africa Report (France), Euronews (UK) and Quartz Africa (USA). Farai, who has reported from more than five countries including some in Europe, is passionate about rural reporting where he covers climate change, renewable energy, women and gender, business, science-technology and agriculture stories. He mainly focuses on stories that impact marginalised groups including women, youth, indigenous people and people with disabilities. He believes these marginalised communities are the ones who suffer most from the effects of climate change. Farai’s articles are solution-driven and go beyond just raising red flags in communities. Farai is the recipient of numerous awards from organisations including IATI, UNESCO and UNDP and Hivos.
