About the webinar
Since its inception in 2006, the Water Integrity Network has promoted water integrity and documented the importance of fighting corruption in the water sector. By promoting the inclusion of Transparency, Accountability and Participation (TAP) as main principles that favor the delivery of equitable water services, WIN is presently focusing on gathering solid evidence on the positive impact of Social Accountability Mechanisms.
In this webinar, Jacopo Gamba and Lotte Feuerstein will present WIN’s objectives and offer some reflections on the role played by citizens in demanding responsive actions from governments and service providers.
