The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, a nonprofit sponsoring independent international journalism, is pleased to continue our partnership with National Geographic and our collaboration with NatGeo News Watch.
The Pulitzer Center recently teamed up with National Geographic for DOWNSTREAM, an interactive website that features on-the-ground reporting on water and sanitation issues around the world.
The Pulitzer Center has also worked with NatGeo News Watch to increase exposure for Indigenous People Confront Global Warming, a Pulitzer Center-sponsored reporting project based in Bolivia and Ecuador. (Story links below.)
The Pulitzer Center strives to promote engagement with global affairs through sponsorship of international journalism across all media platforms. We recognize the value of collaborating with sites such as NatGeo News Watch that share our vision of increasing awareness of vital global issues.
If you appreciate the work NatGeo News Watch features on a range of diverse and important topics, we encourage you to visit the Pulitzer Center website and Untold Stories blog to view our multimedia reporting projects.
