Planète Urgence volunteer will be requested to provide the participants with basic knowledge on video films with the actual making of a documentary to be used for the future exhibition This should include the use of an editing/publishing software for videos, idealistically Adobe Premiere to be used by a team member. In this province, such expertise does not exist so far. It could be found in Phnom Penh but the NGO cannot afford to seek and pay a trainer whose working quality would not be guaranteed. Moreover, encouraging outcome of the first Planète Urgence missions led MIPAD to make this new request Expected outcome of the mission For the participants: Command of the editing/publishing tool by at least one of the participants Ability to achieve on their own video editing and train further team members to video setting : - For the association: - Improve the work and productions quality of the association Moreover, the whole team will be stimulated to learn together with the trained members.

This mission is meant to train the MRDC Team composed of 2 full-time salaried people and several volunteers. All of them are members of MIPAD association and its partner on this specific project, e.g. the Cambodian Indigenous Youth Association The full-time employees are the MRDC project coordinator and a community facilitator. The Cambodian volunteers are young people from the nearby villages who studied and are committed to charity associations.They will be 2 to 9 pending Cambodian volunteers’ availability at the time of the training session. All of them are aged between 18 and 28 None of the participants reads or write French Mainly the MRDC project coordinator has a good command of English (both written and spoken) and will be in charge of translation for the volunteers, who have a basic knowledge. Both MIPAD members are graduated whereas volunteers have a lesser educational level. Except for the project coordinator who already received a short training in video making, the participants have no proper education or experience in video setting.The local team is always eager to learn new techniques, methods and tools. This mission will provide technical support and the command of a tool of paramount importance to achieve this documentation project. Indeed the main reason for this project is to create documents allowing for preservation and revitalization of the Bunongs’ culture and identity. Use of video is an excellent path to this objective as Bunongs’ culture is entirely oral whereas paper issue medias would be far less useful.

The Mondulkiri Indigenous People’s Association for Development (MIPAD) is an ethnic minority community based organization (CBO) operating in Mondulkiri, a North-East Cambodia’s province where Bunong is the most numerous ethnic minority. Mondulkiri is the largest and most sparsely populated as well as least developed province of the country. The area, famous for its rich biodiversity, diverse landscape (forested hills or powerful waterfalls) and unique culture, is facing a rapid development which, in parallel to economic growth, also leads to environmental degradation and the loss of the traditional knowledge of the Bunong. Since 1997, Nomad Recherche et Soutien International (Nomad RSI- a French NGO) has been working in the domain of international health, encouraging therapeutic diversity and the protection of the environment in Mondulkiri. In 2010 Nomad RSI set up a local organization called Mondulkiri Indigenous People’s Association for Development (MIPAD). MIPAD operates throughout Mondulkiri in 5 districts (Kao Seima, O Raing, Pichreada, Koh Niek and Sen Monorom). Since MIPAD was developed till the end of 2015, it’s been supported and advised by Nomad RSI. Nomad will not have activities anymore in Mondulkiri province and will stand as the MIPAD advisor. Step by step the remain budget, projects, assets and staff of Nomad RSI have been handed over to MIPAD until Nomad RSI was completely closed down in June 2016. Today, the MIPAD is implementing 3 projects : 1) Mondulkiri Resource and Documentation Centre (MRDC), in partnership with the Henrich Boll Foundation. The center main function is to collect, gather and classify all available research data and information regarding the environment, culture, history and development of Mondulkiri, and facilitate public access to and use of this knowledge. The MRDC also facilitates coordination and sharing among all the active stakeholders in the province while creating a focal point for them. Finally, MRDC contributes to the development of local cultural enterprise activities. 2) The Equity Project, in partnership with CIAI, which general goal is to contribute to the reduction of Mothers and Children under 5 Mortality rates in Cambodia (CMDG 4 and 5), in rural areas and in provinces where there are significant regional disparities, like in Mondulkiri. While working with communities, MIPAD will also work with and within the public maternal health sector and local authorities to build their capacities to better implement the national policies regarding maternal health. 3) The MIPAD community ecotourism project based in Dak Dam commune. 4) The Indigenous People Communities’ Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction in Mondulkiri (IP-CCA) project, under financial and technical support for Plan International and the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The overall goal of this project is to reduce vulnerability and Improve resiliency of the indigenous people communities and children from climate change in Mondulkiri province. 5) The Bridging Agriculture to Ecology Conservation Among Indigenous People Communities in Mondulkiri Province (Ecoagriculture) project, in partnership with GRET. This project goal is to introduce high value crops such as strawberry via a permarculture system inside the existent community forestry. The indigenous people community will then be able to increase their productivity as well as to promote soil ecology system through systematic organic mulching system for their vegetable beds. MIPAD is really concerned to include local communities in their programs and in making strategic decisions for the organization. At the end of 2015, the MIPAD Federation consisted of 15 Self-Help Groups (SHGs), or participating communities – formed originally from previous Nomad RSI projects. These 15 Self-Help Groups elect the MIPAD Board of Directors during annual general assembly. MIPAD employs 11 salaries and is supported by local volunteers. The organization’s projects are funded and implemented with different partners, such as : Winrock International, Henrich Boll Foundation, WWF, CIAI (Centro Italiano Aiuti all’infanzia), GRET, Plan International, ADB and local authorities.
