The people who live in communities affected by forced eviction should play a leadership role in changing the rules of development. Their firsthand experience equips them with perspectives and expertise to create policy solutions and development plans that truly work.
IAP, with local activists, produces Community Action Guides. Community organizers can use the Community Action Guides to start or strengthen campaigns directed towards the funders of these projects and also to support the creation of community development plans.
One such tool, the Community Action Guide to the Asian Development Bank, is a training manual activists and communities are using across Asia-Pacific to integrate advocacy toward the Asian Development Bank into their existing campaigns and consider their development own priorities.
