Global Forest Reporting Network mentioned in Indonesia’s Tempo
Indonesia’s most prestigious news magazine, Tempo.Co, has mentioned Mongabay.org’s new Global Forest Reporting Network in its latest piece titled Map the World. The article describes Global Forest Watch’s dynamic online forest monitoring and alert system, and their efforts to get this information in the hands of journalists.
“Mongabay is at the forefront of that,” states the article. “On Friday last week, it announced the Global Forest Reporting Network (GFRN), which aims to enlist some two dozen journalists from around the world to produce stories with GFW. [Rhett] Butler wants them to collectively put out at least 180 pieces by the end of next March. They’ll cover topics like deforestation, forest recovery, agricultural expansion into forest areas and illegal logging.”
