Report launch on 13 December: How to ensure humanitarian aid in Somalia reaches those most in need

Issued by Transparency International Secretariat



Transparency International, the anti-corruption organisation, together with Humanitarian Outcomes will publish a report on 13 December examining the main corruption risks in humanitarian operations in southern Somalia.

At a time when the scale and complexity of humanitarian emergencies around the world is increasing, often in fragile states with inefficient public institutions, there is an ever growing need to ensure that committed resources reach those most in need.

The report contains key recommendations for the Somali government, donor agencies and humanitarian aid agencies on how to strengthen their corruption prevention measures to ensure accountability and transparency in the delivery of aid.
