The project had a great impact in the Gaza Strip, where information and data were presented to the public for the first time, and government agencies exchanged accusations among themselves about negligence in addressing the problem of sea erosion in the Gaza Strip and the failure of government agencies to develop solutions to it. The investigation was adopted as the best formulation of data and taught in Palestinian universities where many universities hosted me to discuss the method of building investigation using data journalism.
I used aerial maps, statistical data, photographs, area calculations, and eroded area measuring tools over a decade.
Context about the project:
I faced great challenges and many restrictions, as I was prevented from providing information about beach erosion, but through determination and will I was able to collect real information about beach erosion, and I was able to reveal information that was exposed for the first time about the problem.
What can other journalists learn from this project?
Journalists can benefit from the project, by learning how to mix data journalism and human journalism, and I may have distinguished myself from journalists in that I was able to mix data journalism and human journalism, and made the numbers speak impressively and professionally.
