Integrity Talk 5 – Addressing Integrity and Anti-Corruption in the Water and Sanitation Sectors through Emerging Technologies
This Integrity Talk will explore the role that emerging technologies can play to promote integrity and identify corruption risks in the water and sanitation sectors and in climate change finance. It will also explore some of the challenges, limitations, and ethical considerations linked to applying new digital technologies in the water sector and beyond.
Summary – coming soon
Integrity Talk 4 – Water Tariffs and Inflation
With Sanitation and Water for All
Water and sanitation tariffs have been increasing steadily. For many households they have become unaffordable, particularly for the urban poor. Inflation is one of the driving factors. This talk explored integrity measures taken by different water and sanitation sector stakeholders, including utility companies, international banks, governments, and civil society organisations, to address the situation and resolve the tension between making water more affordable and coping with inflation.
Integrity Talk 3 – Water Integrity for Small Water Supply Systems
Many crucial small or community-based water supply systems work through solidarity mechanisms and are often not formally recognised, eceiving very little support or resources from local government. What does this imply in terms of integrity and can integrity management tools contribute to address water quality, infrastructure, land, and maintenance issues?
Integrity Talk 2 – Water and Sanitation in Informal Settlements and the COVID-19 Crisis
How can we assess and address issues of exclusion and marginalisation in informal settlements from a water integrity perspective? How can different stakeholders use integrity and support the realisation of the human rights to water and sanitation in informal settlements? What has changed with the COVID-19 pandemic?
Integrity Talk 1 – Regulators and the Promotion of Integrity in Water and Sanitation
What is the role of regulators in securing access to water and sanitation services? How can they promote transparency, accountability and participation, and which challenges do they face in doing this?
