Integrating Low-cost Video into Agricultural Development Projects
23 May 2014
facettoolkitcover[2012] This toolkit is designed to help projects and organizations use low-cost video to augment the traditional agricultural development activities and extension services they provide. It was developed by FHI 360 as part of the USAID project Fostering Agriculture Competitiveness Employing Information Communication Technologies (FACET).

Given the increasing availability of low-cost digital video cameras and editing software - and the increasing use of video media in donor-funded agricultural development projects - this toolkit aims to enable practitioners to develop a more systematic approach to using low-cost video as one of the mediums through which they share information with farmers. It includes practical guidelines about storyboarding, technology choices, video production, editing and dissemination.
