Women and Corruption in the Water Sector

Corrupt conduct threatens the achievements of the Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and has a negative impact on the enjoyment of the human rights to water and sanitation (Baillat, 2013). Corruption is one of the key water governance challenges. It is important to recognize that corruption exists in many forms and that the drivers behind an individual pursuing or accepting illicit conduct may be as diverse as the types of corruption. This report aims to shed light on corruption in the water sector through a gender lens, with a focus on household uses. (Published in 2017)
