Participatory Video is a great way to engage a group or community in the planning and implementation of local schemes, creating a true dialogue. InsightShare offers a face-to-face qualitative consultation process which facilitates communication between stakeholders and decision-makers and between various stakeholder groups. By building understanding between stakeholder groups we hope to build consensus in the community.

Karrayu - climate change and sustainability

This film was made by members of the Karrayu community of Dhebiti during a participatory video workshop facilitated by InsightShare in February 2012. It highlights some of the issues faced by the Karrayu pastoralists due to changing climate patterns and decreased access to traditional grazing lands. The participants also documented the community training centre field, established by members of Labata Fantalle, through which the Karrayu are engaged in permaculture training, learning how to grow crops for their livestock and food supplies.


Participatory Video for Monitoring & Evaluation CASE STUDY: Community-Based Adaptation in Africa

In 2009 InsightShare was invited by IIED (International Institute for Environment and Development) to develop ways to use participatory video to monitor and evaluate climate change adaptation. Over 18 months, we held workshops in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Malawi under the Community-Based Adaptation in Africa (CBAA) initiative.


Community Based Adaptation in Africa

Some of the poorest people in the world are already coping with a changing climate. InsightShare travelled to Kenya, Zimbabwe and Malawi to facilitate three Participatory Video for Monitoring and Evaluation workshops. The workshops were to help the local partner organisation and community members keep track of ("Monitor") their ability to cope with changes in the climate and decide together (evaluate) what type of adaptation strategy they thought best for them.
