Course Announcement: Water Integrity and Transparency
Integrity and anti-corruption are some of the least addressed areas in the governance of water resources and services. Water integrity is either neglected or not systematically factored into the formulation and implementation of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM). Since integrity, accountability and anti-corruption are critical determinants of how water resources and services are governed and allocated, these principles need to be included in a systematic way in water policy reform and implementation.
This virtual course offers participants an introduction to the main principles and concepts for a water integrity framework, as an essential condition to improve access to water and sanitation and achieve the post 2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
This course will run from September 14 to November 13, 2015.
There is no course fee, participants will be selected by the organizing committee considering gender, professional background, and geographic balance, as well as on their motivation and commitment to participate throughout the entire course.
