Digital Video: Sharing Lessons for Poverty Reduction

This paper reflects findings of ENRAP’s experiences in the use of digital video a as tool for development over the period April 2004 to February 2006. It answers the following questions: How could a short training o­n digital video spread over 10 days support poverty alleviation activities? Would this help improve awareness and appreciation of the medium? To what extent could it build skills, if any? What kind of post-training support would be required and what mechanisms need to be put in place to ensure this? What kind of financial and other support would be needed for the equipment?
