Journalists covering the ongoing 2017 conference on land policy in Africa on Thursday were trained on how to write about women’s land rights in a session organized by the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), the Thomson Reuters Foundation and the Pulitzer Centre. Thomson Reuters Property Rights Editor Astryd Zweynert said the training of journalists is important because it shows the scribes new innovative ways of doing in-depth reporting on such crucial issues as land property rights, in particular women’s land rights. Steve Sapienza of the Pulitzer Centre on Crisis Reporting said it was crucial for journalists around the globe to receive continuous training on such subjects that are crucial to development and people’s livelihoods. The journalists said they were happy with the training on writing about women’s land rights, the topics and learning new tricks for telling the story with impact.
