Water is news
Water is life, is the motto of three workshops for journalists IMCK senior trainers Judit Neurink and Xdir Domle are conducting in Erbil. In three afternoons they try to interest journalists to write about water problems, as Iraq is one of the countries in the world with the highest usuge of water in the world. They explain how to make water news.
The workshops are the upbeat to a competition for the best story on water, which will be rewarded with a visit to the Waterweek in Stockholm in September 2010. They are part of an awareness campagne led by the Swedisch ngo Global Reporting in cooperation with the Kurdish authorities.
