Community information and planning system (CIPS)

This is a comic-style training booklet detailing a community in the Philippines deciding to change things for themselves following an illness from drinking dirty water. By organising themselves to establish a safe water supply they expose many other community issues and form a core group to tackle them. The booklet details how the group develops using a community information and planning system (CIPS) and eventually set up of a variety of schemes and village committees.
