Training workshop in Berlin, Germany

The Annotated Water Integrity Scan (AWIS) taps collective knowledge to assess and tackle integrity and governance risks.

To realize the 2030 water agenda, slow progress on institution building and governance are major challenges.

Because governance assessments are generally expensive and extensive ventures, development programmes shy away from efforts to enhance good water governance and fall short off their potential to achieve meaningful and systemic impact.

But there are practical and lower cost tools to improve water sector governance. AWIS can be used to effectively analyse water integrity risks that may facilitate corruption, cover up mismanagement and hinder good governance. During a one-day, participatory workshop, the tool is used to examine the three pillars of integrity: Transparency, Accountability and Participation.

Join this 1½ day course to learn how to apply AWIS with your partners and make your water programmes and reforms more successful.

‘The advantage [of AWIS] is that you do not talk about corruption per se, but you talk from the other side, of things that, if they were happening well, might impact positively on reducing corruption.’

Eng Gakubi, CEO of the Kenyan Water Services Regulatory Board

The training workshop is ideal for programme managers, governance consultants, and advisors working on reform process, policy development and water governance, who wish to:

  1. learn how to analyse sector governance together with those decision-makers that need to pick up and implement recommendations;
  2. establish an overview of the checks and balances that are in place to help ensure effective sector performance;
  3. facilitate meaningful reform and change processes that yield tangible improvements.

The training, led by seecon water and governance experts, will introduce the AWIS approach and help you establish how to adapt and use the underlying methodological concepts to facilitate more effective governance reforms. The hands-on training will be tailored to your needs based on consultations with participants.


Thanks to the generous support of WIN’s donors, the AWIS training can be offered at subsidized fees. The course fee includes two lunches, coffee breaks and course materials. Costs for travel and accommodation are to be borne by the participants.

Employees of NGOs/networks:   150 €

Consulting companies and private sector:   500 €

The training workshop will take place in Berlin Germany. Exact venue will be announced shortly.
