About Community Photostories
Community photostories are participatory activities through which a community livelihood assessment can be performed.
Photostories are platforms for community members to express their livelihood experiences as they wish and tell their story through pictures. Community members are trained in the use of digital cameras and given enough time to documenbt thier lives. On a second meeting the picture they have taken are discussed and communities' vulnerabilities, opportunities and strategies are identified.
Visions of Life with Climate Change compiles a number of photostories collected in Namibia, Tanzania and Kenya.
Under the ClimateConsious Programme the photostories were used to develop and implement climate change communication interventions aimed at raising awareness and advising climate change adaption strategies in communities across southern and eastern Africa.
The publication was launched in Durban at COP17, bringing community voices to an international audience.
