2021 OECD Global Anti-Corruption & Integrity Forum Leading through the Crisis: Integrity and Anti-Corruption for a Resilient Recovery
Session: A more transparent water governance for a stronger recovery - Mar 23rd, 1:30 pm CET - 2:30 pm CET
The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the critical importance of sanitation, hygiene, and adequate access to clean water to contain the spread of the virus, especially for the 3 billion people lacking basic handwashing facilities and those living in precarious living conditions. Taking stock of ongoing recovery packages and countries’ efforts to build back better, the session will discuss the crucial importance of integrity and transparency to catalyse needed finance and achieve SDG 6, on "clean water and sanitation for all".
