Patak-Patak offers a critical insight on the positive role that communities play in bridging the gap in water service provision in the Philippines. These associative water systems are clearly charting new paths and options for the Philippine’s waterless population. They highlight the necessity and urgency for an enabling institutional and policy environment that will allow for such alternatives to develop and flourish. The video is produced by the Institute for Popular Democracy, Focus on the Global South and the Reclaiming Public Water.
