EJDC: Earth Journalism Data Compilation

Welcome to the Earth Journalism Data Compilation (EJDC), a project of Internews' Earth Journalism Network. This is a resource intended for journalists interested in data related to the environment. Here is the direct link to EJDC.

In recognition of data resources playing a bigger part in the types of stories that environmental journalists do, EJN has designed EJDC as an open resource for journalists looking for reliable data. Some of these resources in EJDC are well-known and yield news stories on a daily basis, such as the IUCN's Red List, but most may be useful to journalists and yet haven't been substantially featured in reporting. Opportunity knocks!

For further examples on how data is being used by journalists to tell compelling environmental stories, please check out EJN's "Mekong in Deep Water" special project (scroll down to the bottom to see the data bank).

As an open resource, EJDC is always evolving, so please feel free to contribute and provide feedback.

Instructions on how to navigate the spreadsheet are listed under "Where to Go Next."
