Enhancing the integrity of humanitarian operations in complex humanitarian contexts
September 2015-March 2017
Groupe URD is taking part in a project which aims to analyse the risk of corruption in sensitive humanitarian contexts. The project is being coordinated by Transparency International, via its national offices in Kenya, Senegal and Jordan, in partnership with Humanitarian Outcomes. The project will focus on possible practical solutions, and aims, more generally, to help humanitarian actors to understand and manage the risk of corruption.
This project is based on country case studies and comparative analysis in fragile contexts, such as complex emergencies where there is reduced humanitarian space (e.g. Somalia and Afghanistan), countries affected by the mass influx of refugees (Lebanon), or large-scale health crises (Ebola region). Groupe URD is in charge of the case studies in Lebanon and Guinea.
The objective of the project is to exchange good practices, draw lessons from fragile contexts, establish dialogue about these sensitive issues, and make recommendations to enhance the integrity of humanitarian operations via multi-actor commitment at the national, regional and global levels.
