What we learned in Addis Ababa

'The issue of integrity is critical to best utilize the resources we invest in the water sector' said H.E. State Minister Kebede Gerba (Ethiopian Ministry of Water, Irrigation and Electricity) at last week's East Africa Water Integrity Forum. He echoed the calls of water integrity practitioners from across East Africa who gathered to share expertise and experiences on how best to support water integrity in the region.

Here are some of the event highlights.
