The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, hosted at the United Nations Foundation announced a week-long reporting trip to Ghana where selected journalists will have access to expert briefings and field trips to explore how data and technology are being used to drive progress and improve life for Ghanaians, with a focus on issues such as environmental protection, equality and inclusion, and maternal health.
This fellowship will give journalists access to the government officials, civil society leaders, and representatives of international organizations working in Ghana. Journalists will attend a satellite data training with NASA, learn how government officials are working to end extreme poverty using data and technology, and meet the people who are making it happen on the ground.
The fellowship will cover all related expenses such as travel and lodging, and will take place the week of May 20, 2019. The deadline to apply is Thursday, 18 March 2019.
