Looking forward to exchanges on a subject which interests me enormously. Am in Geneva and Valais next week. (April 18 -26 2010)
Contributed a chapter on ‘Environment, Exotic Diseases and the Media: Emerging Issues’ to The Green Pen, edited by distinguished environmental journalists — Frederick Noronha and Keya Acharya.
This is the first book on environmental journalism in South Asia. It provides an important benchmark for journalism in the region as well as an excellent source of material for the future evolution of environmental journalism. Apart from essays from India, there are contributions from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal and the Maldives. The essays examine this specialization of journalism both historically and in the present. The title examines the changing nature of media in the region and the dilemmas facing environmental journalists writing on this subject.
