More than 1 billion people live with inadequate access to safe drinking water, with dramatic consequences for lives, livelihoods and development. Transparency International’s Global Corruption Report 2008 demonstrates in its thematic section that corruption is a cause and catalyst for this water crisis, which is likely to be further exacerbated by climate change. Corruption affects all aspects of the water sector, from water resources management to drinking water services, irrigation and hydropower.

Research Article Quality of Government and Access to Safe Water
In this paper the authors look at the empirical relationship between ’quality of government’ (QoG) and the level of access to safe drinking water. Quality of government is measured by the level of corruption and public sector bureaucratic effectiveness. Using a cross-sectional design with roughly 190 countries, they find strong empirical support for the hypothesis that QoG is positively related with safe drinking water, even when accounting for the strength of democratic institutions. Furthermore, they find interaction effects – the strength of the relationship between QoG and access to drinking water is strongest at lower levels of economic development.
