Journalists in Latin America with experience covering development can apply for funding.

The Center for Sustainable Development Goals for Latin America and the Caribbean has launched the SDG Fund for Journalism, which will finance investigative stories on issues related to the Sustainable Development Goals in the region.

The Fund is currently accepting proposals for stories that take place in Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Central America.

The Fund seeks to promote reporting that provides information of public interest and tells stories about the regional challenges of sustainable development, including urbanization processes, biodiversity, decarbonization, climate change and more.

Grants of up to US$4,000 will be awarded according to the proposal and the publication format. The Fund will also assign an editor to each selected project.

The deadline is July 15.
