AgClimat / Climatic stresses on crop and livestock agriculture in Sénégal
We used the theater forum as a means of communicating some key messages from our research work on groundwater management in the costal Niayes region of Sénégal.
The theater forum format also provides us with a means of learning and getting feedback from the audience about their perspective and experiences, and also gives them a chance to propose new ideas and solutions to the problems posed by the dramatized scenes. The ‘reality check’ that we get from the audience feedback is key to keeping our research ground-truthed and relevant to the situation that farmers face.
