Madeleine Ngeungua has won the Forest Media Award for her investigative reporting on the Douala swamp forests.
She began her investigation into Cameroon's forests during the course of this training, which enabled her to incorporate a "data" dimension into the results of her work. Her article, published on her blog in April 2017, exposes the environmental disaster affecting the Bois des Singes mangrove forest on the Cameroon estuary.
In recognition of this work, she has now received the Forest Media Award (ForMA). Organised by FODER (Forêts et Développement Rural), this annual prize rewards journalists and media organisations for their efforts in promoting knowledge and awareness about forest management.
