Reporting on Conservation and Wildlife Issues in East Africa

Offered by U.S. Agency for International Development and Internews

Though separated by borders, Sub-Saharan Africa grapples with similar conservation issues; from poaching to land degradation to human-wildlife conflict to heatwaves, drought and other weather extremes exacerbated by climate change.

These story grants will support reporting that explores the short- and long-term consequences of environmental destruction while also informing policymakers, affected communities and the general public about ways to address these problems.
