dc.description.abstract"Corruption is increasingly recognised as one of the major challenges facing the water sector. The World Bank estimates that corruption undermines efficiency in the water sector by 20-40%. This scale is significant. In sub-Saharan Africa alone, with its USD 6.7 billion annual price tag to reach the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a 30% leakage is more than USD 20 billion in losses over the next decade. Research published by Transparency International shows that if water utilities in Africa would operate in a corruption-free environment, efficiency would increase by 64%. Put another way, nearly two-thirds of the operating costs for providing water in Africa are due to corruption."en_US
