In the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector there is not just one WASH system.
The physical system (the pumps, the pipes); the institutional systems, the political economy, and the social systems. Each of these sub-systems are complex in their own right. And working on these systems requires a sector that is able to talk across disciplines, and find a common language.
There is also the 'Shadow System': the corruption and lack of integrity that is integral to the sector and costs anywhere between 10-35% of the finances.
Barbara Schreiner and her team at WIN (Water Integrity Network) are responding to this 'Shadow System' by working on four areas: transparency, accountability, participation, and working on anti-corruption mechanisms at different levels. This to cement integrity, and keep out corruption in the sector.
