Human security and sustainable development are increasingly threatened by complex emergencies resulting from conflict and from natural disasters. The current mechanism for dealing with such emergencies is humanitarian assistance, provided by governments, multilateral agencies and international or national non-governmental organisations. This workshop will present the conclusions and recommendations of analysis carried out under the Preventing Corruption in Humanitarian Assistance programme conducted by Transparency International and various partners over the past two years. The focus of the workshop will be on current perceptions of corruption and its consequences in humanitarian operations by humanitarian provider staff and the recipients of emergency aid in selected emergency-affected countries; current strategies, best practice and proposed policy improvements to address corruption in humanitarian assistance; and recommendations for future action by humanitarian providers (public and non-governmental), donors and civil society.
