Central African Forest Initiative

CAFI, The Central African Forest Initiative, is a collaborative partnership supported by the UNDP, between 6 Central African nations and a coalition of donors. It’s aim is to recognise and preserve the value of the forests in the region to mitigate climate change, reduce poverty and contribute to sustainable development. 

In 2017, we produced a series of short videos for CAFI, which we filmed in the forests of Gabon. One of the videos, a 6 minute short, narrated by Marcel, a Gabonese actor and filmmaker, was screened at the COP23 in Bonn. A social-media-friendly English version of the video was narrated by Hollywood actor Djimon Hounsou. We also produced a 6-part web series for CAFI, a version of which was screened at the Paris Climate Summit.

A super responsive team, full of excellent ideas, flexible, generous with its time and creative. The video raised the awareness of donors and a general audience on the importance of Central African forests for fighting climate change - and managed to convince a lot of people internally about our own work!
