Amazon Rainforest Journalism Fund

Información en español

El Rainforest Journalism Fund tiene como objetivo apoyar y desarrollar la capacidad de los periodistas locales, regionales e internacionales que hacen reportajes sobre temas relacionados a las selvas tropicales. Una de las tres regiones de enfoque de la selva tropical es la Cuenca del Amazonas, que se extiende por todo el continente Sudamericano. El Comité Consultivo del Amazon RJF está compuesto por líderes en periodismo sobre temas relacionados con las selvas tropicales. Los miembros fundadores de este comité fueron los primeros en pensar en un fondo para apoyar el periodismo en la selva amazónica, de una forma alineada con las perspectivas regionales y con la comprensión profunda del contexto. Esta visión sirvió de inspiración para la creación del Rainforest Journalism Fund.

Los miembros del Comité Consultivo del Amazon RJF revisan y ofrecen orientación independiente a las propuestas de proyectos de reportajes locales y regionales que se concentran en las selvas tropicales de Bolivia, Brasil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Perú, Surinam y Venezuela. El comité también ayuda a desarrollar reuniones anuales para periodistas que reportan desde y sobre la Cuenca del Amazonas. Los miembros actuales del Comité Consultivo del Amazon RJF son:

Information in English

The Rainforest Journalism Fund aims to support and build capacity of local, regional, and international journalists reporting on issues related to tropical rainforests. One of the three rainforest regions of focus is the Amazon Basin, spanning across the continent of South America. The Amazon RJF advisory committee is composed of leaders in journalism on issues relating to tropical rainforests. Founding members of this committee were the first to envision a fund to support rainforest journalism in the Amazon in a way that is informed by regional perspectives and deep understanding of the context. This vision served as inspiration for the further elaboration of the Rainforest Journalism Fund.

Members of the Amazon RJF advisory committee review and provide independent guidance for proposals for local and regional reporting projects focusing on tropical rainforests in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. The committee also helps to develop annual convenings for journalists reporting from and on the Amazon Basin. Current members of the Amazon RJF Advisory Committee are:
