Fighting corruption in humanitarian aid with e-learning
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.
The e-learning course is free of charge. To access different learning platforms you generally have to register first. Please follow the instructions on the individual platform.
