Publication of a case study report on the integrity of the response to the Ebola crisis in Guinea
The report, “Collective Commitment to Enhance Accountability and Transparency in Emergencies: Guinea report”, is based on in-depth interviews, and consultations of communities and aid organisations to identify risks of corruption during the response to the Ebola crisis. It includes a series of recommendations on ways to reduce these risks in the future. This work is part of a broader study on these issues including case studies in Somalia, Afghanistan and Lebanon.
The findings of this study were presented to the public at a conference in Conakry on 30 March 2017.
This conference, which was held under the auspices of the Guinean Economic and Social Commission, highlighted how important the issue of aid integrity is, not only for international organisations and donors, but also for the country, its government and its civil society.
