WHEN TO USE IT
- In preliminary phases of a reform process or integrity change programme, to raise awareness, map potential corruption risks, and identify priority areas for action.
- When different stakeholders need to develop a common understanding of the integrity situation in a region or specific sub-sector.
- Strengthened dialogue to sustain a change process and reduce the risk of corruption in the sector.
- Coherent input to water policy through engagement with key water sector stakeholders.
- Support for evidence-based advocacy efforts at national and global levels.
HOW IT WORKS
- Local government officials
- Civil society organizations
- Water user representatives
An Annotated Water Integrity Scan is conducted in a one-day workshop by a group of eight to twelve people familiar with the specific water sub-sector in review (for example, water service delivery, WASH, WASH in schools, or water resource management). Using simple definitions and criteria, participants score and annotate critical risk areas on Transparency, Accountability, Participation and Inclusion to then agree on priorities for action.
