Using Video to Improve Information and Knowledge Flows From and Among Smallholders
World Ag Info Project Design Team
Solution Scenario Concept: Use the medium of video to convey local information, knowledge, experiences, and needs from small-scale farmers to a broad audience of extension workers, researchers, NGOs, policy makers, and other farmers. The model outlined here provides a way to scale up the local use of video made by farmers as an effective tool for giving “voice” to smallholders.
WorldAgInfo Project Solution Scenario 5: Technologies and Information Exchange Systems : Radios and Cell Phones. Based on the deliberations of participant groups in Workshop 1, the WorldAgInfo Design Team drafted a problems and solutions summary document (available within Section Three of the Final Report). This is one of several potential solution scenarios to emerge through that process. These were in turn used to inform proposed information projects generated by Workshop 2 participants in Livingstone, Zambia (available within Section Two of the Final Report).
