• Water Integrity Network

    The Water Integrity Network (WIN) supports and connects an open network of partner individuals, organizations, and governments  promoting water integrity to reduce corruption, and improve water sector performance worldwide.

    Our vision is a world with equitable and sustained access to water and a clean environment, which is no longer threatened by corruption, greed, dishonesty and wilful malpractice.

WIN researches the impact of corruption and poor integrity in the water sector and advocates for integrity as a crucial requirement to achieve the global development agenda. We develop and promote tools for Transparency, Accountability, Participation, and Anti-corruption (TAP-A)  in specific countries and partner programmes. We focus on capacity development and risk prevention in all our work, with the aim of improving water sector performance to the benefit of all, especially the most vulnerable.

International Advocacy

We advocate political and social action for water integrity, raising awareness of the impact of corruption and training stakeholders to tackle the issue.


We encourage collective action by supporting multi-stakeholders processes, connecting actors, and enabling knowledge sharing among practitioners.

Research and Tools

We promote practical responses through research and the development of tools to assess, and manage corruption risks at different levels.

Network of Partners

From Albania to Zambia, WIN partners are promoting integrity and advocating change for the water sector. Find out what amazing work our partners are doing.

WIN Team and Governance

The formal WIN Association that supports the network has 14 members globally from which 5 are elected to the Supervisory Board. The WIN Association is based in Berlin, Germany.

WIN’s work is made possible thanks to the contributions and ideas of our partners and members who implement programmes with us on water integrity worldwide and thanks to the funding of the Hewlett Foundation and the governments of the Netherlands (via DGIS), Sweden (via Sida) and Switzerland (via SDC).



We work around the globe to promote water integrity activities and research the impact of corruption in the water sector.
