Ecological Justice: investigative journalism grant

Fossil fuel exploitation, carbon trading, biofuels-related land grab, climate change and other such pressing current issues are priorities for many journalists in Africa, both within and on the periphery of the FAIR network.To this end, the Forum for African Investigative Reporters (FAIR) is inviting applications from investigative journalists in Africa to produce stories on urgent environmental issues in their countries.

Five applicants will receive a grant of US $500 each, to cover time and resource expenses.

The funds are provided by the Centre for Civil Society / E-Jolt project based at UKZN in South Africa, to cover issues around natural resources, human rights, social justice and the environment.

Applications are welcome from investigative journalists based in Africa, and must adhere to the FAIR grant guidelines available on our website.

Please submit your proposal and budget to the FAIR offices, by email: or by fax:  +2711 482 7208

Application deadline: 15 June 2012
