We were approached by well-established research institutions working on transboundary water management in the Nile Basin to help them develop an effective communication tool and content design for the public.
This film seeks to disseminate research findings and raise public awareness on the benefits of collaboration on transboundary water resources. It furthermore provides an educational tool to other researchers, incl. students, on the Tekeze-Atbara basin case study of transboundary water resources management.
We were responsible for producing the film, including content and storyboard development, co-directing and post-production in coordination with local partners. In specific, we conducted the following activities:
Explore and discover
The story board was developed on the basis of research information provided by local and internal research institutions as well as other primary and secondary knowledge sources from the basin.
Co-create and design
Video footage was produced in Ethiopia and Sudan, featuring natural resources, landscape, communities/people, economic and cultural activities and infrastructure.
Reach and connect
The film has been widely disseminated through public channels (TV in Sudan, YouTube) and used in conferences, meetings, workshops and University courses.
