Combating corruption and promoting integrity in global water governance

In The Secret of Divine Civilization, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá supported the positive governance reforms of the time, to promote equity and righteousness and combat corruption. Today, the international community promotes integrity in governance, based on a growing body of lessons in transparency, accountability, participation and anti-corruption measures. Achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 6 for water and sanitation will require reforms of integrity in this key sphere. This presentation, based on recent global research, will share concepts, prospects and approaches for urban water integrity.
