About the Congo Basin Rainforest Journalism Fund
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 Congo Basin, spanning across countries including the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Congo, Central African Republic, Cameroon, and Equatorial Guinea.
