Breathe Nature Stories joined the National Geographic Society to evaluate the impact the Nkashi: Race for the Okavango film had in illuminating the cultural heritage and environmental importance of the Okavango Delta and its people and inspiring communities to continue to be stewards of the place while embracing their indigenous knowledge.

  • Carefully identified the impact goals of the film, which were waived into the storytelling, and rolled out a theory of change for the impact strategy and measurement of the films' influence on communities within the Okavango Delta.

  • Carried out pre and post-film screening surveys and focus group discussions to help assess the success of the film influencing the community's perceptions towards the conservation of the Delta and their livelihoods.

  • Trained local survey enumerators and focus group facilitators on social science and common bias to ease the data collection process.

  • Provided insights and pathways to further support the film  achieve the desired impact and behavioural change based on the analysis of the data collected on the new state-of-the-world.
