Water Corruption, Environment, Governance and Climate Change, Berlin, Germany, 29 March 2010

February 18, 2010 at 8:46 am

This Expert Consultation organised by the Water Integrity Network (WIN) intends to address the serious gap in knowledge and research on the nexus of water, climate change, governance and corruption.

Significant financing will be invested in new and existing water infrastructure, governance mechanisms and technology for climate change adaptation and mitigation. As these investments begin to flow, special attention must be paid to the growing risk of corruption. Investments may be diverted, misdirected, over or under- estimated, not only due to corruption, but also because of weak governance and inappropriate management. Overall, this will lead to missed opportunities to combat the adverse effects of climate change as social inequity continues to increase and environmental conditions worsen.

Selected authors will receive an invitation to participate in the consultation. The invitation will include one return economy class airfare, visa/insurance fees, per diem and accommodation for three days in Berlin.

Paper submission deadline: 03 March 2010 at 18.00 CET
