RWI Expands Media Training to Guinea

On 26 November, 15 Guinean journalists began a 10-day training program on understanding and reporting on the mining and oil industries. Guinea boasts over half of the world’s known bauxite reserves, large iron deposits and oil, gold and diamond deposits. During the program journalists will deepen their knowledge of the sector and fine-tune their reporting skills. With a mixture of theory and practice, the journalists are meeting speakers from civil society, government and industry, allowing them to build their understanding of how the sector works and who the key players are. A field trip to the bauxite-rich region of Boke (pictured, right) gave them an opportunity to witness mineral extraction and interact with local communities while putting their skills into practice as they worked on individual media reports.

The training program ends in February 2013 after additional field visits, mentoring and development of a written guide on the sector for media. Previous media trainings have been held in Ghana and Uganda.
