WIN-IRC Event: "Water Integrity Global Outlook 2016: Launch in the Netherlands", 15 April 2016, The Hague

Published on: 18/03/2016

The Water Integrity Network presents its flagship publication on fighting corruption.

The Water Integrity Network and IRC, in cooperation with Dutch Regional Water Authorities, the Netherlands Water Partnership and the UN-Global Compact-NL, are pleased to welcome you to the Dutch launch of the Water Integrity Global Outlook 2016 (WIGO).

The full Water Integrity Global Outlook sees the light after two years of research and collective work with contributions from a range of partners and consultants. It is co-published with the Global Water Partnership (GWP), The Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), CAPNET and Transparency International (TI) and TI-Bangladesh hosting BAWIN.

The publication will be made public on World Water Day 2016. It shows how clean governance in the water sector can fight corruption, benefit diverse stakeholders and make efficient use of investment in water services and infrastructure worldwide.

The document contains important messages and a set of recommendations to build "integrity walls" to reduce the enormous human and financial losses resulting from corruption and other malpractice.
