Transmiting through image proven agricultural practices: zai and compost
Heart of the project
Agriculture facing climate hazards
Guié is a village confronted for decades by droughts, desertification and malnutrition. The conventional cultivation of cereals in these territories is particularly sensitive to the rains that will follow the sowing. Traditional cyclical droughts are accompanied by « disturbances » of the rains, where the lack of rain at unusual times ruins crops. The erosions of soils aggravate the situation.
Audio-visual documentaries at the service of farmers
The cultural technique of zaï makes it possible to ensure the harvests by the concentration of rainwater in basins previously dug and filled with compost. It also allows better yields. In order to disseminate this practice, audio-visual documentary proves to be a particularly powerful tool of awareness, transmission and popularization, in particular by promoting positive and concrete achievements. It also helps to circumvent illiteracy.
Training the local team in the creation and distribution of didactic films for the transmission of sustainable development practices
Identification of actors and processes for zaï-compost technique at the local level and realization of transmission media (writing, filming, editing, assembly)
Confrontation of films with audiences through broadcasts in the villages and putting films online
at least 10,000 views on Facebook movies and more than 300 shares
30% growth of zaï cultivated areas in targeted villages
