- a reader -

Compiled and edited by Deutsche Stiftung fur internationale Entwicklung (DSE), under assistance of BEAF-GTZ, Public Awareness Bonn, September 2001

the tonic

How much food is there available in the world of today? Which efforts are under taken to improve food security. And furthermore: What will the future bring?



the stories

Take a look at what young journalists from across the world tell us about the situation and trends in their countries. The voices compiled in this reader do not represent the view from outside, but show the look from an inside perspective.



the journalists

The journalists are participants at a work shop on environmental journalism, organized and held by the Deutsche Stiftung fernationale Entwicklung (DSE) and its branch, the International Institute for Journalism (IIJ) in Berlin from August 23rd until October 23rd, 2001.

The objective of the IIJ's training courses is to qualify press and agency journalists from developing countries. Through the promotion of pluralist and informative reporting the partner countries are supported on their way to democratization.

Target groups, for instance, are reporters and editors, journalists who have specialized in a certain field, managers of newspaper publishing houses and press agencies, and trainers and teachers of journalists.

The priority work areas of the IIJ are geared to the practical requirements of journalism. Through "learning by doing" journalistic skills are developed, covering all important aspects of newspaper production. Special courses deal with subjects such as science writing and economic journalism. Together with local partners the IIJ also holds seminars and workshops in other countries. The IIJ staff works in Berlin.
