Workshop covers water, sanitation problems [Lebanon, Jordan]

Posted on Nov 5, 2018 in Specialized Topics

Women journalists from Lebanon and Jordan can apply to attend this workshop in Jordan.

The Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA), funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), is organizing a three-day workshop on water and sanitation problems in the region (dates to be announced).

In coordination with the Breman Overseas Research and Development Association, the organizer will select five female environmental journalists to take part in this program to search for a story that will ultimately bring to the fore a real and current water and sanitation issue.

The participating journalists will then be fully funded for a five-day expedition in either Jordan or Lebanon to write-up an investigative story of their choosing.

The stories will be published on the SuSanA platform and through international and regional media channels.

The deadline is Nov. 10.
