Challenging Official Forest Data and Proposing Solutions
The Pulitzer Center’s Rainforest Investigations Network (RIN) believes that it is a journalist’s responsibility to verify and challenge official data.

In a recent investigation, Fellow Yao-Hua Law discovered that, in Peninsular Malaysia, forest reserves are not gazetted; oil palm plantations are grown inside reserves; forest clearing happens in delicate areas; and outdated maps reign.

In his project Unrecorded Forest Loss in Peninsular Malaysia: Locations, Actors, and Consequences, the journalist exposed the confusion and contradictions in the data that underlines forest management of Peninsular Malaysia. His stories proposed solutions to the problem.

Join our conversation that will discuss how messy forest data affects sustainability and how journalists, NGOs, civil societies, and governments can work together to improve forest management, starting with the data.
