Le Quynh


Journalism Fund
Southeast Asia

Le Quynh worked as a full-time journalist for 15 years with leading Vietnam media outlets, including Tuổi Trẻ, Sài Gòn Tiếp Thị, Vietnamnet, and Người Đô Thị.  

Her reports, op-eds, and in-depth interviews focus on Vietnamese socio-economic issues with an environmental angle, including, but not limited to, urban development in Ho Chi Minh City and sustainable development and climate change in the Mekong Delta.

She has also participated in dozens of training courses and conferences on data journalism, environmental issues, climate change, and sustainable development of the Mekong countries, especially Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand.

Her work has helped the public understand controversial urban development projects that were not publicly discussed in the mainstream media, resulting in some changes in environmental policy.
