There’s a deluge of apps that detect your covid-19 exposure, often with little transparency. This Covid Tracing Tracker project will document them. When they began comparing apps around the world, they realized there was no central repository of information; just incomplete, constantly changing data spread across a wide range of sources. Nor was there a single, standard approach being taken by developers and policymakers: citizens of different countries were seeing radically different levels of surveillance and transparency. So to help monitor this fast-evolving situation, they are gathering the information into a single place for the first time with this Covid Tracing Tracker—a database to capture details of every significant automated contact tracing effort around the world.
Defending the jungles, mountains, forests and rivers of Latin America has never been this dangerous. Six of the ten most hostile countries for leaders and communities defending the environment and their ancestral lands are located in Latin America, according to UN Special Rapporteur Michel Forst’s 2016 report to United Nations. This is why 50 journalists, developers and photo/videographers from ten countries (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela) teamed up to document to report on episodes of violence against environmental leaders and their communities. The result is this special investigative project with a database compiling 2,367 attacks spanning eleven years (2009-2019) and 29 in-depth stories on individual cases.
