Today, August 29 in Bishkek held a two-day training on investigative journalism in the field of environment and natural resources. Coach stands correspondent ICIJ, a direct participant in the project “Panama documents» (Panama Papers) Will Fitzgibbon.
During the training, the speaker talked about the differences between traditional and investigative journalism.
“In his investigation of journalist should suspect all was going on and did not believe the victims. Therefore, we immediately empathize with the victim. Although both sides are subject to suspicion as long as this information is not investigated, “- notes Mr. Fitzgibbon.
Participant of the training and correspondent of radio “Azattyk” Kubanichbek Joldoshev:
“I believe that today is very important not only for the training of Kyrgyz, but also for Central Asia journalists, the coach who is well-known journalist and member of the project “Panama Documents””.
According Kubanychbek Joldosheva need to learn from the experience of foreign experts and it would be good to learn the methodology of the investigation in the field of environment. “We lack the investigative methodology, unprofessional obtained somehow. We must learn the facts and evidence base material support “, – said the participant of the event.
Training participant and director of the British branch of the environmental organization Fauna & Flora International (FFI) in the Kyrgyz Republic Zharkyn Samanchina noted the need to improve the level of quality of journalism in Kyrgyzstan and other Central Asian countries. With regard rasledovatelskoy journalism, it almost does not exist, is poorly developed.
“The media have paid very little attention to environmental protection, use of natural resources. More and more is focused on the current political and economic news. It should be noted that today invited not only journalists, but also representatives of civil society. I think it really is time to unite and make efforts in these areas. Because now more than ever very acute issue of sustainability not only in our region but also around the world. But sustainable development is not only the economy, not just the social aspect but certainly the environment “, – said J. Samanchina.
