Water Integrity Network Photo Competition 2017

Deadline: January 31, 2017

How does corruption and malpractice affect water and wastewater management? What does integrity in wastewater management mean? How can we visualize it? Submit photos for the Water Integrity Network Photo Competition. Your photos could have the power to reflect how increased water integrity can change the water sector and improve lives. Images can help show the impact of corruption and poor governance.
