Calling the world to action on water integrity

The Water Integrity Global Outlook is pushing the issue of corruption in the water sector into the open.
Here's how water sector stakeholders are responding and taking simple steps to improve the sustainability and integrity of their work, now.


Integrity in infrastructure protects public interest

Planning, commissioning, and procuring water infrastructure requires careful stewardship.


SDGs for water require protection from corruption

Water is central to the SDGs. So is water integrity.


Climate change adaptation cannot be effective without good water governance

Lessons learned from the Adaptation Futures 2016 summit.


Updates from the network

Mexican organization, Controla Tu Gobierno, is leading advocacy campaigns to include a  water sector-specific perspective to the agenda of the Open Government Partnership (OGP). A panel was held at the OGP Americas regional meeting on May 31, to address for the first time how OGP National Action Plans can contribute to making data on water access/consumption available and encouraging citizen participation.

The Kenya Water and Sanitation Civil Society Network launched the 2nd edition of the CSO Annual water and Sanitation Performance Report 2015 on June, 2016.The straightforward and critical report builds on information about WASH and WRM projects of 65 CSOs, CBOs, and other non-state actors from 28 counties in Kenya.

The Integrity Management Toolbox is being adapted for use by river basin organizations in a multi-stakeholder approach with the Jasa Tirta state Corporation and cewas. The new toolbox is being piloted and validated in the Brantas river basin in Indonesia (Java) and 16 organizations just participated in the first implementation workshop (June 14-16). 

A consortium of civil society organizations in Benin, led by WIN partner the Benin Global Water Partnership (PNE Benin), has organized first consultations with the Government's reform commission to advocate for the inclusion of a right to water and sanitation in the constitution. This is a first step in enabling better regulation of the sector in Benin.

The WIN secretariat team is growing! We're pleased to welcome: Flora Ohlsen - Team Assistant, Umrbek Allakulov - Research and Development Officer, and Elsabijn Koelman - Nework and Communications Officer. They will support us to engage with the network and build our knowledge on the costs of corruption in the water sector.
