Habari za Maji prize for outstanding journalism

As part of our Fair Water Futures programme, in October 2018, Water Witness International and its partners awarded the ‘Habari za Maji’ prize for outstanding journalism for accountability in water management. The Awards attracted 120 submissions from 46 journalists who wrote on topics including access to water supply and sanitation, flooding, illegal mining in water sources, the effects of fluoride in drinking water, water permitting, climate change, environmental conservation and accountability for water resources management. The initiative recognizes and rewards the important contribution of journalists in increasing public understanding of water issues, stimulating debate and driving solutions to Tanzania’s water resource management challenges.

The next rounds of Awards for 2019 will be announced in the next few months so watch this space!
