Objectives
Objectives

Documenting…..

  • …..environmental crimes

  • …..social impacts

  • …..trade links


Key elements
Key elements

  • Ground research / Overflights

  • Collecting documents

  • Photo documentation

  • Recording testimonies

  • Observations

  • Establishing contacts


Ground research
Ground research

  • Ground research

    • Allows more detailed documentation and verification of remotely gathered data

    • Allows collecting testimonies

    • Shows Greenpeace is “on the ground”, not only behind desks


Overflights
Overflights

  • Allow covering large areas in little time

  • Provide aerial close up image of destruction – often very impressive

  • Sometimes the only choice in otherwise unaccessible areas


Collecting documents
Collecting documents

Examples:

  • Ownership documents

  • Concession boundary maps

  • Permits

  • Documents on trade links


Photo documentation
Photo documentation

  • Before going into the field, exact needs of images need to be determined

  • Images need to be geo-referencable (GPS position)

  • Images need to allow identification of area

  • Close ups need to go along with overview shots


Recording testimonies
Recording testimonies

  • Help to tell the story from a human perspective

  • Give local people a voice

  • Need to be recorded properly

  • Need (if possible) identification of person interviewed

  • Make sure it is clear, what people really talk about (e.g. the concession of your interest or the neighbouring one?)


Observations
Observations

  • “only” reference is researcher himself

  • Bring “Greenpeace on the ground” back into the picture

  • Help to give color to our stories (e.g. personal observation of orang utan, sun bear etc. in concession area)


Establishing contacts
Establishing contacts

Important for

  • …..future information gathering

  • …..future logistical support


Trip report
Trip Report

  • Who, when, where

  • Short description of goals

  • Short summary of main findings

  • Map with GPS way points

  • Detailed account of what results, illustrated with images taken

  • Images with clear captions (what is on image, GPS position)

  • List of contacts made

  • Remarks (difficulties, side issues, future research options/needs)
