InfoNile — COVID-19 Pandemic and Water Crisis

InfoNile seeks teams of journalists (TV journalists and local radio journalists) to submit proposals for in-depth journalism stories on the dual dangers of the COVID-19 pandemic and water crisis in the Nile basin. Stories should focus on local stories in the journalists’ respective countries, for example, how low water access is it impacting the spread of COVID-19, or the underlying water and sanitation challenges faced by vulnerable communities. The project is supported by the Pulitzer Centre and the National Geographic Society. Two stories will be selected for production, one for TV and one for local radio. Eligibility extends to all countries in Africa’s Nile River basin, especially arid Egypt and Sudan as well as drought-ridden areas of Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda. Project pitches will be funded on a rolling basis between April and July 2020. Details here
