Welcome, everyone! Here’s the program for the 8th Global Investigative Journalism Conference, (#GIJC13), scheduled for October 12-15, 2013, in beautiful Rio de Janeiro. It’s the first time we’re holding the GIJC in the global south, and we’re combining it with two other key events in journalism: the annual Latin America Investigative Journalism Conference (COLPIN), and the International Congress of ABRAJI, Brazil’s investigative journalism association. Panels and workshops will be available in languages as marked: English (Eng), Portuguese (Port), Spanish (Span). Plenary and showcase panels will be translated into all three. There will be streaming video available for all plenary and showcase panels and all those held in the RDC auditorium (C1). We look forward to seeing you in Rio!

How to investigate some of the most important issues on our globe. Strategies, methods, techniques and sources for breaking the untold environmental stories in our near future. Gustavo Faleiros will talk about digital mapping and geojournalism. Subhra Priyadarshini broke the story on the world's first “vanishing islands” by digging into satellite images, scientific papers and reports. And she did the footwork talking to affected climate refugees in the Ganges delta. Mark Schapiro is an expert on carbon markets and fraud in the age of climate change.
