The InfoNile Project
InfoNile project is a geojournalism Website Mapping Issues of Water in the Nile Region with Locally Reported Stories on Environmental, Sociocultural, Economic and Political Dimensions of Water Issues in the Nile Basin
The goal of InfoNile is to bridge the gap between scientists and researchers collecting data on issues of water in the Nile Region, journalists reporting on such issues, and members of the public, in order to increase mutual awareness and understanding of the various dimensions to water issues of this ancient and most significant river.
Members of the public are able to submit citizen journalist reports with the goal to make coverage as inclusive and diverse as possible.
Land Deals in the Nile Basin
“Apart from denying local communities, “farmlands and food”, land grabs have turned most local communities into, “slaves working on investors’ farms and mines on land that once belonged to them.” Dorothee Lisenga, Coordinator for Coalition des Femmes Leaders por l’Environnement et le Development Durable (CFLEDD)Tweet
