New Factsheet: What is sextortion and what does it have to do with water and sanitation?

The Water Integrity Network, in collaboration with ANEW,End Water Poverty, SIWI and SWA, has released the attached fact sheet (EN/FR/ES) on the issue of sextortion in accessing water and sanitation. As a grave form of corruption that increases gender inequalities, hinders sustainable development and undermines the human right to water and sanitation, the fact sheet outlines the problem and specific steps that sector stakeholders can take to address it.  

In addition, for those colleagues currently in Dakar for the Alternative World Water Forum (FAME 2022), WIN kindly invites you to the following session to engage further on the topic.
