The Pulitzer Center's work on rainforests and climate is supported by the Norwegian International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI), the Rockefeller Foundation, Omidyar Network, MacArthur Foundation, and individual donors.
The Rainforest Journalism Fund represents a major investment in international environmental and climate reporting, with plans to support nearly 200 original reporting projects along with annual regional conferences designed to raise the level of reporting on global rainforest issues such as deforestation and climate change. The Fund is intended to build capacity for local reporters from rainforest regions in Latin America, Africa, and Asia, as well as international reporters working in those regions. For more information, please see our announcement. Prospective applicants can find out how to apply on our RJF grants page.
The Rainforest Investigations Network launched in November 2020. It's a sister initiative of the Rainforest Journalism Fund with a mission to foster cross-border, collaborative investigative journalism at the intersection of climate change, corruption, and governance. Investigative fellows spend a year probing drivers of deforestation and following the money globally.
