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.
- Pro-poor, for equity
- Through active multi- stakeholder coalitions
- Evidence-based, with research as a pillar
- Practical and action-oriented
Global advocacy, local action
We work with international organizations, policy bodies, and CSO and multi-stakeholder networks to promote water integrity and motivate action to prevent corruption in the water and sanitation sectors. For these activities, we work on a range of priority topics, including water sector financing, infrastructure development, water allocation, service regulation, or climate adaptation with partners including AMCOW, the Open Government Partnership, the OECD Water Governance Initiative, End Water Poverty, Sanitation and Water for All.
We also support a wide international network of partners to research the impact of corruption and promote practical responses. Till now, we’ve implemented tools and supported integrity activities across the globe, from Albania to Zambia. This type of work includes the development and implementation of integrity management processes for utilities and other water sector institutions (in Albania, Bangladesh, Kenya, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras) as well as integrity assessments for different sub-sectors and evidence building.
In three countries, we also work closely with multi-stakeholder coalitions to develop long-term focus country programmes: Bangladesh, Benin, and Kenya.
We’re always open to new partnerships and programme ideas to promote integrity and make the case against corruption in the water sector. Find out more and join our initiatives below or contact us to work together.
WIN AS A NETWORK
As a network, WIN works with partners to implement water integrity activities and support knowledge sharing processes. There is no formal membership. Partners meet at least once a year at the WIN partner meeting and are welcomed in different open processes and programmes. The last partner meeting took place in August 2020.
WATER INTEGRITY TOOL IMPLEMENTATION
WIN and partners provide a set of tested water integrity tools to help water sector organizations around the world engage stakeholders, assess risks, and create action plans for better water management through integrity.
We support the implementation of these integrity tools in different regions and contexts. We also document how network partners innovate to address integrity in WASH and WRM. See more cases and good practices of organizations and partners promoting integrity.
