The report identifies some of the key policy lessons learned in this ESRC-DFID funded project which conducted Participatory Video projects in three rural villages in Nepal.
Community members from the villages were trained to make short documentary films looking at the disaster risks their villages face, and what support they feel they need from government to better cope with future disasters.
The videos they produced were then screened to government officials and representatives of NGOs and donors at all levels of government, from the local up to the national.
This project was funded by the ESRC-DFID Development Frontiers Research Scheme (Grant Ref. ES/R000514/1).
