Water and Finance
Public finance is a crucial risk area for corruption and mismanagement in the water sector, as large amounts of money are allocated and change hands. Water sector practitioners have a role to play in ensuring that financial rules are applied properly in the sector with sufficient due diligence and control. They also can contribute their expertise and voice to overarching reforms addressing the design of more efficient and transparent public financial management systems. Promoting more participation and transparency are key means to achieving this.
