Report Examines Data Transparency, Access To Information On Water Pollution

Open Society Foundations: What’s in Your Drinking Water? Too Many People Still Don’t Know
Elizabeth Moses, research analyst in the Environmental Democracy Practice at the World Resources Institute, discusses results from a World Resources Institute report examining data transparency for safe drinking water. Moses writes, “A radical shift in information sharing is necessary to protect people from using contaminated water. Civil society, private funders, and bilateral donors working to support open government can help ministries redesign information disclosure systems so that they are accessible to countries’ poorest, most vulnerable citizens” (10/2).
