Videographer to document implementation of the AGUASANI programme from Inhambane

 

Purpose and Objective:

The overall objective is to produce 5 videos that can portrait the following aspects of the Aguasani and Sanitation programme:

  1. How the residents of these towns are benefitting from the interventions, in the form of describing how a family’s life has been impacted by the programme (income generation by participating in the programme’s construction activities, better access to WASH services, economic development in the towns due to better accessibility of water / sanitation)
  2. Interventions for inclusive WASH, documenting the case of a family of a person living with disabilities and the interventions around improving WASH services for them.
  3. Improvement of sanitation at community level through community mobilization activities (focus on Xitiqui groups).
  4. Scope of construction works, by documenting the various stages, with emphasis in ongoing construction works for the water supply system in Homoine (showcasing all AGUASANI programme).

 

 Methodology and Technical Approach:

Using his own equipment, the contracted videographer will document on video the UNICEF supported activities on the Aguasani programme in all three targeted towns in Inhambane (i.e. capital of districts of Jangamo, Homoine and Morrumbene), All videos must follow the guidelines provided by UNICEF.

 

Activities and Tasks:

 

Due to the large scale of the Aguasani project, the production of the 4 videos was divided in two parts.

 

PART 1: Travel to the three targeted towns in Inhambane province to gather raw footage (in high-definition) of the Construction works and interview beneficiaries.  As part of this consultancy, a 3-days of shooting is envisaged, covering the above-mentioned activities in all three towns / villages.

 

A previous round of shooting was already completed in November 2017 with a total of 425 RAW/un-edited videos of family interviews and b-rolls of constructions work (high quality sound and image) was delivered. The consultant is expected to use this existing material as the baseline for the development of the final videos, complemented with the materials to be gathered under this Consultancy.

 

PART 2: To develop a story line for each of the four videos and cover the final editing (launch, family interviews after the launch on how it improved their lives, impact). The delivery of the final products, consisting of 4 edited videos, will be in accordance with story line.

 

The videographer will need to go to Inhambane to complete the shooting, and produce 4 high quality videos as described above. Regular meetings will be held at UNICEF to discuss the status of the video and footage, and also any other issues.

 

The targeted communities are the capital of the districts of Jangamo, Homoine and Morrumbene, including the peripheral areas where the water components of the water supply systems are located, and shooting at Government offices in Inhambane and Maputo.

 

The consultant is expected to start the activities after the signing of the contract. Due to the unknown time factor of the expected celebration event, this activity is to be delayed and the consultant should not delay the other activities. The consultant can work on the story board/script after shooting the interviews and the communities. These documents can be adjusted once the celebration has taken place and new material has become available.

B: Develop a video that highlights the role of leader during the process of achieving an open defecation free district.

Background

The practice of open defecation is wide spread in rural Mozambique, and as per latest IOF survey nearly half of the population (48.5%) does not have a toilet. The elimination of open defecation is an explicit SDG target, and the government of Mozambique has undersigned this and aims to achieve this by 2025.  The strategy is by behavioral change communication (BCC) and the approach is Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS). The CLTS approach facilitates a process of which communities collectively reject this practice of open defecation and assist communities in action planning to construct latrines.

 

This CLTS approach is currently being implemented across the country, but its origins is probably found in selected districts in Manica and Tete. UNICEF piloted this approach about 10 years ago with the technical support on the development of district sanitation plans. Community level activities were implemented by private sector implementation “participation education and communication” (PEC) contract by DPOPH. Technical and financial support was provided by the UNICEF, and this model has become the standard in Mozambique.

These efforts have resulted in substantial results, and a large number of communities have been declared open defecation free (ODF), including achieving ODF postos and localicades. in some cases districts are close to become ODF, like Macossa, Guro in Manica province.

 

The leadership and oversight has proven to be crucial to this progress to achieve ODF. District administrators, permanent secretaries ensured this was a key priorities, while technical oversight was provided by the district representation of the ministries of education, public works and health. The leaderships role of the chefe de posto and localidade played a crucial to motivate local leadership, whom in their turn ensured that communities collectively abandoned the practise of open defecation and adopt latrines. 

This type of inspirational leadership is required across the country to achieve the national target to become ODF by 2025. Documenting the district’s leadership role and how they drove the results to achieve an ODF district is a tool to allow the learning of other district across the country. A documentation will also motivate the leaders currently involved to reach the last mile and receive the recognition of their efforts and the national level.

Objective

Develop a video that highlights the role of leader during the process of achieving an open defecation free district.

Method

    1. Desk review of available documents, such as district sanitation plans, PEC zonal ToRs, contracts and review documents. UNICEF will provide the required documents to be reviewed.  The consultant is expected to develop interview questions based on the literature review.
    2. Stakeholder interviews: A mixture of leaders from different levels, as the district administrator, permanent secretary, chefe de posto, religious and traditional leaders, as well as technical staff from the departments are to be interviewed for each of the three districts. UNICEF will support with the introduction, but the consultant needs to identify the most appropriate leaders. The interviews should also include household interviews.
    3. Photo and video shooting at the communities: additional footage and photos are expected to be collected at the community level. This would include photos and videos of rural communities and houses where sanitation options are being build, used or maintained. At least one community per district should be covered, hence at least three communities in total
    4. Documentation of celebration: this event is expect to be organized by the Government in the course of 2018 to celebrate the results of the first open defecation free district. This event would event include the provincial and national level presence. In case this event is organized, the consultant is expected to capture the key speeches and recognize the champions, in video and paper.
    5. Drafting of document and video editing: Based on the interviews and the consultant is expected to draft the interview transcripts. The interviews and the desk review document will inform the brochure as well as a story board for the video documentation feed into  into a full report, and edit the video. In consultation with UNICEF, the most important leaders and statements will be selected for the end product video. The final product of the 4 pager brochure is to be developed in consultation with UNICEF.

The consultant is expected to commence activities after signing of the contract. Due to the unknown time factor of the expected celebration event, this activity is to be delayed and the consultant should not delay the other activities. The consultant can submit the draft brochure the story board after the interviews and community shooting. These documents can be adjusted once the celebration has taken place and new material has become available.

Deliverables

Scope of work and limitations

The consultant is expected to cover the events and opinions as they appear. It is not the role of the consultant, to ensure that these districts achieve the ODF status or increase the role of leaders.
