Water integrity implies honesty. It is based on the three pillars of Transparency, Accountability and Participation (TAP) and aims for equity and sustainability. It can be promoted and enhanced to improve governance and address all major risks of corruption in water.
Integrity and anti-corruption are some of the least addressed areas in the governance of water resources and services. Water integrity is either neglected or not systematically factored into the formulation and implementation of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM). Since integrity, accountability and anti-corruption are critical determinants of how water resources and services are governed and allocated, these principles need to be included in a systematic way in water policy reform and implementation.
This online course offers participants an introduction to the main principles and concepts for a water integrity framework, as an essential condition to improve access to water and sanitation and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
There is no course fee. Sponsored by a partnership of international development organisations, the course is free. Because of this condition and the opportunity it represents, special commitment is solicited for those interested participants to actively follow the course, participate in all activities, and complete all modules.
Interested participants must apply for this course before Friday, September 14th, 2018.
Organized by Cap-Net UNDP, UNDP Water Governance Facility, and the Water Integrity Network.
