Environment for journalists

Environment is important, but does not get the attention it should in Kurdistan because the region has so many other problems, Kaka Ibrahim said, the director of the department of Planning at the Environment Ministry in Irbil. IMCK-trainer Andre van der Vlugt visited him before starting a workshop Environment for Journalists in the Kurdish capital.

Ibrahim agreed that climate change is the main issue of the moment and the future, but indicated his ministry can only collect information and share it with the ministers and the public. 'And politicians do not listen.'

Andre van der Vlugt is a former journalist who is now working for the international environmental organisation Greenpeace.

On April 14 he started a 5 day workshop at the training of IWPR in Irbil for 15 journalists of print, radio and TV. Partner organisation is Media Development Organisation in Irbil.
