Our valuable voices: Community digital storytelling for good programming and policy engagement
Number of pages
This document highlights the experience and lessons learned from a Community Digital Storytelling (CDST) activity by CARE International through its Integrated Community-based Adaptation in the Mekong (ICAM) Project, funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
It explores ways CDST can be used to strengthen people’s capacity and resolve as equal participants in climate change and disaster risk reduction decision-making spaces.
CDST is a participatory development process where community members develop and share photo-video stories as a means to raise awareness, stimulate dialog and influence policy. While CDST worked well in a climate change context, it can be adapted and used in other contexts to raise community voice for social change and justice.
The publication is aimed at climate change - disaster risk reduction practitioners interested in applying an innovative methodology to reach the most vulnerable.
