Anti-Corruption in Water and Sanitation

PublicationDescription:
Water and Sanitation Brief / With 2.1 billion people without access to safely managed water services, 4.5 billion still lacking safely managed sanitation facilities, and almost 1000 children dying daily due to water-­ and sanitation related diseases, we cannot afford vital resources to be misused, lost or squandered by corruption. It represents a major obstacle to sustainable development, not least in the water and sanitation sector. In order to contribute to the fight against corruption, Sida supports interventions that strengthen transparency, accountability, participation, and sustainable institutions in the water and sanitation sector.With 2.1 billion people without access to safely managed water services, 4.5 billion still lacking safely managed sanitation facilities, and almost 1000 children dying daily due to water-­ and sanitation related diseases, we cannot afford vital resources to be misused, lost or squandered by corruption.
