The Pulitzer Center is inviting journalists, editors, and independent media organizations to submit proposals on Innovative Reporting: Mapping Transparency and Governance on Rainforest Issues.

During this historic election year around the globe, it’s important to take note of how these events may impact the world’s vital rainforests. From the islands of Indonesia to the deep forests in Brazil, there’s a growing need for transparency around the governance of rainforests to combat climate change and protect the life that thrives in the rainforests. 

With this in mind, they seek ambitious reporting projects on rainforests that address the intersection of data transparency, governance, deforestation, land-grabbing, and other critical issues in the Amazon, the Congo Basin, and Southeast Asia. 

Proposed projects should amplify local voices and have a strong, credible distribution plan to reach diverse audiences and leverage digital media, social networks, and media partnerships.
