Multiple perspectives, one Goal: RESILIENCE
At this page you will find three films made for the toolkit of the RESILIENCE project. Each film gives an overview of the context of each case study and shows some of the dilemma’s and key points that contribute to enhancing the resilience of local communities.
Kalimantan, Indonesia, Challenging choices in a changing environment
Since the failure of the Mega rice project in Kalimantan, communities are struggling to make their living of the infertile peat lands of central Kalimantan. Due to mismanagement, unclear regulations and unsustainable traditional coping mechanism, recurrent peat fires are threatening the livelihoods of local farmers; it’s contributing to health problems and global warming due to the Co2 emission. How can local communities make a difference in protecting the environment while making a sustainable resilient living?
Pando, Bolivia, Challenging solutions in a changing environment
Floods are threatening the livelihoods of the communities who are located along the riverbanks in Pando. The communities traditionally make their living of the fertile grounds, but due to climate change and more severe and frequent floods, their resilience is tested to the maximum. Their vulnerability and their existence depend on the river. Different actors have different solutions, agendas and objectives, all in the best interest of the community to reach resilience, but can this work together?
Borana, Ethiopia, Challenging future in a changing environment
The pastoralists of the Borana have been herding their cattle for centuries. More frequent droughts due to climate change, overgrazing and mismanagement is testing their traditional coping mechanisms. Commercial destocking could be a solution as timely intervention to reduce the impact of drought, but can all stakeholders put the greater interest before their own? Can the pastoralist herdsmen let go of their traditions? And can the donor world be flexible enough to meet the real needs?
