Writeshop on Video for development

These days FAO is hosting a very interesting writeshop about how to use Video for development. Introducing the event, the organizers declare the objective to:

document experiences and provide guidance to readers on the application of video for rural and agricultural development

So FAO, CTA, gtz and the University of Wageningen, gathering experts in Rome, want to offer a general overview of the potential use of video in development. Here is a tentative graph to define the two factors (audiences and objectives) directors keep in mind while deciding what kind of video to shoot:

With the publication of the book, the participants wish specifically to accelerate the debate on video in agricultural development.

Passionate about social media, development projects and the world. Currently, I’m supporting the Emergency Division of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations in managing its online communication through the website, the social media and the mobile apps.

One thought on “Writeshop on Video for development

  1. Luca, this is just super – I think you should share it with the participants (Oriana will give you the list) and if we end up using the graphic we will of course reference you on it.

    The only thing I’m not sure about is the ‘audiences’ title. Are they the audience? or the people commissioning the use of video? or the users? etc, not sure.
