"Vanillekoorts" published in de Groene Amsterdammer

Jun 13, 2018

Ingrid Gercama's and my article and photos are published in de Groene Amsterdammer today. With a grant from Free Press Unlimited we travelled to Madagascar to explore how vanilla trade is flourishing at the expense of the island's pristine rainforests.

Hoe de vanillekoorts Madagaskar ontwricht
Wereldwijde honger naar vanille heeft de prijs enorm opgedreven. In Noord-Madagaskar maakt dat sommigen snel rijk. De regio zit in een spiraal van criminaliteit en corruptie. De vanille floreert ten koste van het regenwoud.
