Crisis in Darfur

On our main street, I recently saw a young shoolgirl setting up a small stand with a sign saying 'save Darfur' hoping to collect donations for the unfortunate victims of this relentless genocide. This prompted me to look for the best guide on this atrocious situation, and found it to be the excellent multimedia presentation published by Council on Foreign Relations in collaboration with MediaStorm.

The Darfur guide is the second in a series of interactive guides to the most complex issues and conflicts on the planet. The six-chapter project includes a multimedia narrative, interactive maps and timelines, and extensive information on the situation in Darfur.

Featured in Chapter 1: The Grim Reality is the work of photojournalists Lynsey Addario, Marcus Bleasdale, Stanley Greene, Olivier Jobard, Benjamin Lowy, Kadir van Lohuizen, and Paolo Pellegrin. There is an introductory narrative by Mr Kofi Annan, Secretary General of the UN.
