Abstract: From p. 4: "The aim of this policy brief is to enhance understanding of the diversity and scope of corruption in the water sector and to give an overview of existing knowledge of available tools to combat corruption. There is particular focus on corruption’s links to the creation and alleviation of poverty. Examples are drawn from a wide variety of water usages (including water resources management, supply and sanitation, agriculture and hydropower production) as well as from different geographic and socio-economic contexts. Following this introduction, the second part of this Policy Brief focuses on the diversity of corruption across the water sector. The third section contains a critical examination of existing anti-corruption measures available for the water sector. Section four identifies some key areas for further knowledge generation. Section five provides elements of a strategy for how to tackle corruption in the water sector. The final section provides the conclusion."
