Training: Integrity Management Toolbox for Small Water Supply Systems

Training workshop in Berlin, Germany for organizations focusing on community-managed rural water supply

Training workshop in Berlin, Germany

Community groups who manage their own water supply systems often work with few resources, no legal status, and little to no long-term support from local governments or NGOs that built the system. This causes challenges for cost recovery and sustainability, made worse by poor integrity.

Integrity Management (IM) is an iterative process to support community groups to professionalize management, provide services sustainably in accordance with national human rights standards, get support from duty bearers, and establish feedback and accountability mechanisms with the community.

The process is facilitated by a Integrity Management Toolbox to identify and address priority integrity risks and compliance gaps, as a starting point for practical and iterative improvements in financial management, operations, and regulatory compliance. The Integrity Management (IM) Toolbox has been used successfully by CARITAS Switzerland in Kenya to support community groups in sustainably taking over operations and maintenance of rural water supply systems.

Join this 1½ day course to learn how to apply IM Toolbox for small water supply systems with your partners and make your water programmes and reforms more successful.

The Integrity Management Toolbox training will be facilitated by Lucie Leclert, WASH unit coordinator and lead facilitator at CARITAS, who developed and adapted the tool for rural community-managed systems.


Thanks to the generous support of WIN’s donors, the 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.
