Transparency International’s flagship publication, the Global Corruption Report, sets out to explore how corruption corrodes the foundations of our societies and to suggest what we can do to reverse this course. In 2008 the report tackles the crucial issue of the water sector, examining how the failure to govern this essential life resource more transparently and accountably has an enormous price – both today and for future generations.
