Investigating how natural resources are used and abused is a critical area for investigative reporters. This session focuses on water and timber – resources in great demand that are highly profitable and increasingly scarce. Their exploitation has a major impact on individuals, wider society, climate change and the environment generally. Hear tips from experienced reporters on how to investigate these two sectors: Tom Johnson, from Mongabay and The Gecko Project, looks at the corruption driving Asian land grabs and destruction of rainforests; Fabiola Torres shares her experience exposing industry problems in Latin America; and Oxpecker’s Estacio reports on what’s happening in his native Mozambique.
