World Humanitarian Day, 19 August

 

Humanitarian assistance involves large sums of funding – US$ 24.5 billion in 2014 – that can be vulnerable to corruption and diversions.

Curbing corruption is a long-term effort that must be given strategic importance and adequate resources.

Leaders of humanitarian organisations, donors and affected governments must take on the responsibilities and actions required to tackle corruption and to ensure humanitarian assistance delivers on its goals.
