The Water Integrity Global Outlook 2016 (WIGO 2016) demonstrated a growing recognition of the need for measures to improve integrity and to eliminate corruption to enhance performance in the water and sanitation sector. It emphasized the use of transparency, accountability, participation, and anti-corruption measures (TAPA) to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 on water and sanitation. WIGO 2016 also demonstrated the need for stronger data and evidence on the extent and impacts of corruption in the sector to guide the development and implementation of pro-integrity/anti-corruption programs.
WIN aims to establish the WIGO as a regular publication, which will become a medium for collecting and sharing evidence, knowledge, experiences, ideas, policy options, and good practices on improving integrity in the water sector. Each upcoming volume of the WIGO will unpack the concept of water integrity within the context of new selected theme. The next WIGO, focusing on integrity in urban water and sanitation, will be published in 2021.
We are inviting all interested water sector stakeholders (international organizations, government and regulatory agencies, academic and research institutes, service providers, civil society organizations, associations, and others) to contribute to the upcoming publication.
We are looking to collaborate on new research, case studies, and data collection initiatives on corruption and integrity in urban water and sanitation.
Please send your suggestions or queries to Umrbek Allakulov, WIN Research and Evidence Coordinator, via our contact form.
We look forward to discussing opportunities!
