• Integrity Tools

    WIN provides a set of tested water integrity tools – designed and developed in collaboration with expert partners – to help water sector organizations around the world engage stakeholders, assess their needs and issues, and create action plans for better water management.


WIN’s integrity tools are flexible approaches that can be tailored to different management models and processes, and can easily be adapted to different countries and contexts. WIN and its partners support adaptations and work with organizations to facilitate workshops, providing facilitators and mentoring support. Contact us for support.

Stakeholder Tools:
Finding Common Ground

Stakeholder Engagement Tools support inclusive multi-stakeholder decision making, help develop a common understanding of risks and issues, and promote public participation, trust, and social accountability in public and private organizations.

We support different types of organizations to work with integrity tools:

  • Governments and water sector institutions
    To get a better understanding of integrity issues to inform policy-making, set integrity standards for the sector, and support collective action.
  • Water and sanitation service providers
    To build trust and reduce specific integrity risks for their organization related to accounting, human resources, operations & maintenance.
  • CSOs, user associations, and communities
    To get to the roots of recurring water system problems, work out mutual accountability processes, and strengthen project management.
  • Water stewardship initiatives and multi-stakeholder partnerships
    To increase sustainability and effectiveness of their action through transparency and accountability.

WIN is working on reviewing all tools under the lens of the Human Rights to Water and Sanitation, and looking specifically at the engagement of disadvantaged groups, including women.

WIN and partners have been developing tools for a broad range of specific stakeholders since 2012. In collaboration with partners, we have initiated, facilitated, and coached more than 50 processes in Asia, Europe, Latin America and Africa, in more than ten countries including:

  • Kenya, Benin, Zambia, Ethiopia, Uganda
  • Guatemala, Ecuador, Colombia
  • Indonesia, Bangladesh, India
  • Albania
