    The aim of this book is to foster enthusiasm for making the production and use of video an integral part of development activities. With digital video making becoming more accessible and more widely used in development work, it is time to reflect on how it is being applied to promote development and to elucidate some guidelines for its future use in this field. The book was written mainly to inform rural development professionals, practitioners and decision-makers in a variety of organisations – from NGOs and farmer associations to government departments and research and educational institutions – about the diverse uses of video in development. Specifically, it seeks to give decision-makers greater insight into the subject in order to support decisions on the strategic use of video in development. As such, it draws extensively on practical experiences to illustrate the potential of this powerful communication tool for development.
