Background

EcoDoc Africa came about as a result of the growing realisation of the power of video and people’s narratives to facilitate understanding of complex environmental issues, and to combat environmental impact reports which often reduce people to numbers and environmental impacts to being insignificant. At the same time the advent of broad band internet has provided an important outlet for these visual documentaries and narratives to be shared with interested parties around the world at very low cost, and thereby to facilitate international campaigning.
