The Water Integrity Network (WIN), formed in 2006, aims to fight corruption in the water sector. It stimulates anti-corruption activities in the water sector locally, nationally and globally. It promotes solutions-oriented action and coalition-building between civil society, the private and public sectors, media and governments.
The overall development aim of WIN is to reduce poverty by fighting corruption. Improved governance of water resources and services, such as through enhanced integrity, transparency, accountability and honesty, increases the chances of sustainable and equitable use of water and the expansion and effective delivery of water supply and sanitation.
The Network’s specific objectives are to:
- Promote increased awareness and understanding of corruption issues related to water;
- Improve the information and knowledge base and disseminate effective anti-corruption methodologies and best practices relevant for organisations working with water;
- Support practical actions to fight corruption in water;
- Develop monitoring mechanisms relating to corruption in water; and
- Encourage and support enhanced capacity development of governments, civil society, private sector and all other interested parties to undertake and coordinate activities, advocate and work together against corruption in water.
