This webinar discussed three key methodologies used broadly in investigative journalism and provide case studies related to tropical rainforests. Panelists will also share tips on managing successful collaborations for investigative reporting projects. Finally, participants will have the opportunity to ask issue-specific or general questions about investigative reporting and cross-border collaborations.
"Investigating Environmental Crime" was hosted in English. While designed for journalists based in and reporting for audiences across Southeast Asia, it was open to journalists from other regions with tropical rainforests. Future webinars on the same topic will also be hosted in Spanish, Portuguese, and French.
