Clean water needs clean governance

Water and sanitation are vital but too often left  vulnerable to poor integrity, corruption, and malpractice.

 

The Water Integrity Network advocates for integrity  at the heart of water management and service delivery, for all.

Water integrity?
It's essential

Corruption and poor integrity are global issues. They lead to ineffective water and sanitation infrastructure, unchecked pollution, unprepared service providers, and whole communities left with unsafe water, or no water at all. 

 

Together, we can change this and protect the water and sanitation sectors worldwide through integrity.

Water integrity means using power and resources ethically and honestly for sustainable and equitable water and sanitation management.

It means work is done with professionalism, decisions are made in the public interest, and money is used where intended and needed.

What you can do

Water integrity is not a pipe dream. There are many practical ways to ensure sector institutions are run with integrity and without impunity.

Integrity in water and sanitation is something we can build and nurture through Transparency, Accountabiltiy, Participation, and Anti-corruption.

    How can we justify exclusion from service of millions of city residents when water and sanitation are human rights? Why are residents of informal settlements often paying far more for water than residents of wealthy neighbourhoods? It's time we rethink service delivery to really leave no one behind.
