Investigating mangroves’ destruction in Cameroon

OCRI’s partner in Cameroon, Adisi-Cameroon, is holding from July 18 to 20, its first training to empower journalists selected from three major cities, Douala, Kribi and Buea, in producing investigations on the phenomenon of mangrove disappearance and to help civil society to advocate for saving what remains. Following this training and a second session later during the year, participants will work for several months under the mentorship of trainers with a grant from OCRI funding.
