Happy New Year!

Best wishes to all of you in the water sector who are working honestly for change. We look forward to supporting you in 2017.
We'll work hard to crack open the black box of poor governance and corruption in the water sector: supporting partners, researching risks, and sharing knowledge about ways to prevent malpractice.
We want to make water integrity a topic we can all discuss openly in the sector from now on. Join us and make a difference: start the conversation on integrity!
