Covering Community Forest Management

Selected journalists met in Oaxaca City on April 3 and visited three communities that are managing their forests sustainably for timber and furniture production, eco-tourism, biodiversity conservation or ecological services. Community leaders and experts on environmental issues and forestry in Oaxaca briefed them in each setting. Journalists discussed techniques for covering this kind of story, engaged in writing exercises, and heard about new environmental reporting initiatives in Mexico.
