I have long been interested in water, and have sometimes blogged about it under the category environment, but I have decided to add it as a separate category. The news on water is "heating" up. Transparency International just came out with a new Global Corruption Report 2008 - on Corruption in the water sector, which shows a clear link to corruption, abuse of power and poverty in developing countries.
I also came across the Water Integrity Network, or WIN as they call themselves, which is trying to raise awareness to fight corruption in water worldwide to reduce poverty and improve the governance of water resources.
And the subject is now going mainstream (sorry about the pun) with a corporate business conference organized by Ethical Corporation on good water stewardship on November 25-26 2008 in London. Details on their website here.
