Activity 6 Systems map

Draw a systems map illustrating one of the following.

  1. your impression of the South African Working for Water Programme, possibly from a different level of interest to that demonstrated in the tutorial (e.g. a higher level such as an international perspective or a lower level such as the stakeholders associated with the programme); or
  2. an intervention that you have been involved with (either home- or work-related).

For the intervention that you choose:

  1. name the system of interest (SoI) being focused upon, in terms of a purpose (e.g., a system to. reduce ethnic conflict);
  2. think of and map four or five bounded sub-system components key to the success of your chosen SoI;
  3. if you have more then five components, examine how some might be grouped together and present these on your map as sub-systems of sub-systems (or sub-sub-systems);
