“Making every voice count for adaptive management” (MEV-CAM) aims to promote a systemic learning-by-doing approach for monitoring and disseminating knowledge, lessons learnt, and experience. It aims to document the baseline conditions and existing sustainable land and forest management practices in the different dryland landscapes presenting it through a visual medium.
Shifting towards participatory systems that engage different stakeholders, including the local communities, in the decision-making process, was found to be better than solving acute problems on the ground immediately without any stakeholder intervention. For that reason, this initiative aims to fill that gap between stakeholders and to document the change allowing for a better project up-scaling in the future. The MEV-CAM initiative uses the participatory video approach as a powerful tool that involves a group in using video technology to create their own video message while considering their desire for social change.

The Participatory Video and Most Significant Change (PVSMC) technique is an M&E methodology that allows participants to share their stories of change and identify the one they deem most ‘significant’. Participants then create a video story about the event. This results in an understanding of the changes that have occurred, plus which ones are most valued by participants and details on how these changes came about.
