Apply: GLF Restoring Africa’s Drylands Fellowship

Deadline: 10 May, 2021

Applications are open for the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) Restoring Africa’s Drylands Journalism Fellowship.

The aim of the fellowship is to prepare journalists to produce powerful and impactful stories on challenges tied to Africa’s drylands.

More than half a billion people live and work in Africa’s drylands, among the most parched landscapes on the planet, and representing 43 percent of the continent.

Smallholders nurture crops and graze livestock on land that is mostly rainfed, and rapidly degrading, due in part to the relentless, devastating force of climate change that threatens the rich biodiversity of these fragile landscapes.

Benefits

  • The best five journalists will receive storytelling grants to produce more in-depth stories
  • Chance to improve practical skills and gain required knowledge to effectively report on this critical issue
  • Mentoring throughout the conference

Eligibility

  • Open to early career reporters across Africa
  • Journalists should have passion for learning and raising awareness about land management and conservation
