DELIVERABLES Explainer video
In this first video we made a visualisation of the abstract of one of their research papers. This video serves as an introduction to the overall research project and talks about the hidden costs of renewable energy. There are different factors that come into play when creating a renewable energy project. Often the intersections of those different factors are being missed and that messages is at the core of their findings and the heart of this video.
The second video we created, talks about the impacts of large dams on flood recession farming, a farming technique that is vital to local communities in East-Africa.
Large dams are being built for renewable energy but they often also interrupt the natural floods of the rivers, breaking the cycles of natural flooding that occurs.
This puts a lot of river-dependent people at risk when it comes to food security, as they heavily rely on these traditional farming techniques.
