This video, created by participants from the Gamo highlands, focuses on the importance of forests and the problems caused by deforestation. Despite many good efforts by communities and the government, Ethiopia has suffered severe deforestation and according to some sources only 11.9% of the country is now forested. The video highlights the impact that deforestation has had on the environment and people of the Gamo region. Facilitated by InsightShare, the participatory video process helped to raise awareness of the value of local forests and is spurring community members to take action.
