Water and Sanitation
INFORMATION BRIEF – ANTI CORRUPTION IN WATER AND SANITATION
With 2.1 billion people without access to safe drinking water at home, 4.5 billion still lack safely managed sanitation 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. Corruption 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.
