Andrés Bermúdez Liévano
2022 RAINFOREST INVESTIGATIONS FELLOW (COLOMBIA)
Andrés Bermúdez Liévano is a Colombian journalist who works at the Latin American Center for Investigative Journalism (CLIP) and whose reporting has focused on environmental issues, drug policy, transitional justice, and how victims of Colombia's armed conflict rebuild their lives.
His work includes in-depth looks at how politicians and businessmen use secrecy jurisdictions (as part of the Pandora Papers, the largest collaborative cross-border investigation to date), irregularities in how Colombia's largest carbon offset project calculates its avoided deforestation rates and violence against environmental defenders, as well as two books on Colombia's 2016 peace agreement.
Born in Bogota, he received his bachelor’s in literature at Los Andes University and master’s in journalism from Columbia University and Sciences Po Paris. He has been a grantee of the Pulitzer Center's Rainforest Journalism Fund.
