TI Norways International Work
TI Norway and the IFRC have launched an e-learning course to help humanitarian organisations in their fight against corruption. Because humanitarian organisations are not immune from corruption, its risks, and its impacts, e-learning courses have been developed and will be available free of charge for staff and volunteers of humanitarian organisations and the general public. The goal is to proactively reduce the risk of corruption by raising awareness related to challenges humanitarian workers are facing and providing staff and volunteers with the tools to identify, report, and reduce corruption risk.
Corruption is a major challenge in humanitarian assistance as it deprives the most vulnerable people, the victims of natural disasters and civil conflicts of essential live-saving resources. Organizations need to take this challenge seriously, as it has direct negative implications for their operations. TI Norway has with funding from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs developed an app for anticorruption in humanitarian operations. This app is based on Transparency International’s «Preventing Corruption in Humanitarian Operations – Pocket guide of Good Practice», with updated tools in 2014.
We hope that the app can be useful to humanitarian workers and others who need guidance to identify and handle corruption risks in operations. In this context, practical suggestions are made on what to watch out for, prevention, what you need and challenges that you may face.
