Rainforests

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.
