How effectively does the Business 20 (B20) process channel recommendations on anti-corruption from the business community up to the Group of Twenty (G20) leaders?

This manual on Improving Transparency, Integrity, and Accountability in Water Supply and Sanitation is the result of a partnership between the World Bank Institute (WBI) and Transparency International (TI). It was developed under the Open and Participatory Government Program at the Municipal Level (known by its Spanish

This manual aims to help leaders and champions within their own governments across the world who are determined to overcome corruption in public contracting, particularly in the water sector.

It was written by Juanita Olaya under commission from the Water Integrity Network (WIN) and Transparency International (TI).
