"Video has proved to be a useful data collection tool to engage communities and to capture their feedback on the impact of projects and programmes."

This report looks at the results of a pilot project that used a mobile video application (app) called "Our Story" to gather participatory community feedback for two projects - one in Namibia and one in Indonesia. The Participatory Video Monitoring (PVM) approach and app were developed by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC)'s PMER (Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting) Unit in Geneva, Switzerland, in cooperation with Newcastle University's Open Lab, a research group that investigates how technologies can be designed for (and by) local communities, with an emphasis on participatory and bottom-up approaches to design and innovation.
