Whether surprising or bold, instructive or combative, they cover different information needs and are very versatile. Have you ever searched for an infographic or a video, which explains a developmental topic easily? And how can it be found at short notice?

As information specialists at the documentation centers of Alliance Sud we browse different sources every day. Therefore we developed a  multimedia portal with a video collection and links to other multimedia resources. The Multimedia Portal is at your disposal.

Selected from a wide range the videos are clearly grouped by ten themes: from energy and agriculture to culture and politics to economics and commodities. The portal can be browsed per themes or tags. It proposes you further videos on the same topic. It comports different kind of videos: from cartoon to documentary videos like the one of 15-year-old Kevin Doe which shows how he created his own radio station. Click to see the video.

In addition, the portal also provides information on many other multimedia resources like sound and image, infographics and cartoons, photos and blogs. Those who want to visualize a text or are searching for audio streams for a lecture notes for example, will find a variety of suggestions. Click to see the other webressources
