Chico Harlan

We are so pleased to announce that Chico Harlan, one of our distinguished foreign correspondents, is joining the Climate team as our first global climate correspondent.

In this new role, Chico will traverse Europe, Africa and the Middle East to uncover the most important stories about how global warming and environmental change are affecting people and societies. He will seek out compelling human narratives, pursue critical questions of accountability and capture how people across the globe are adapting to a shifting landscape.

Chico has had a highly varied career at The Post, having served in four departments.

Chico got his start at The Post in 2008 in the Sports department, covering the Washington Nationals. He then moved to the Foreign desk, becoming the paper’s East Asia bureau chief.

Since 2018, he has served as Rome bureau chief.

Please congratulate Chico on this new assignment, which he will start later this year after wrapping up some work for Foreign.
