CREATE Project

GLOBAL PROJECT - Collective Resolution to Enhance Accountability and Transparency in Emergencies - CREATE

 In 2014 Transparency International established a network of TI chapters interested in the issue of corruption in humanitarian aid at the national and global level. The Humanitarian Aid Integrity Network (HAIN) is led by TI Kenya on behalf of the international TI movement. In this framework, TI-Kenya is currently coordinating the implementation of the CREATE Project.




This project, funded by ECHO (the European Commission Humanitarian Office), brings together TI's anti-corruption expertise with the humanitarian research and policy experience of Humanitarian Outcomes and of Groupe Urgence, Réhabilitation et Développement. The project generates evidence-based knowledge of corruption risks and practical solutions in diverse but complex humanitarian contexts. Based on country-specific research and comparative analysis of corruption risks in complex emergencies with constrained access (Afghanistan, Somalia), countries affected by massive inflows of refugees (Lebanon), and countries affected by large-scale public health emergencies (Guinea), the project  shares good practice and lessons learned and develops recommendations and principles to enhance the integrity of humanitarian operations through multi-stakeholder engagement at the national, regional and global level. The project is running for two years, from September 2015 to August 2017, and is coordinated by Transparency International Kenya, with the involvement of Transparency International partners in Jordan, Lebanon and Senegal. Using Transparency International’s multi- stakeholder engagement approach, the project seeks to promote and facilitate inter-stakeholder dialogue and joint commitment to strengthen transparency and accountability in humanitarian operations. This includes stakeholder consultations with key humanitarian donors, UN agencies, international and local non-governmental organisations (NGOs), and state agencies.

Uwajibikaji Pamoja

Uwajibikaji Pamoja (“Accountability Together” in Kiswahili) is a web-based Integrated Complaint Referral Mechanism. The project is implemented by TI-Kenya in three counties (Turkana, West Pokot, Wajir and Marsabit), in partnership with over 45 state and non-state service providers both at local and international capacities. This initiative was first launched in April 2014 in Turkana, followed by West Pokot in September 2014, in Wajir County in October 2014 and since February 2017 in Marsabit. The ‘Uwajibikaji Pamoja’ platform aims to improve service delivery for the local residents by facilitating coordination of service providers, enhancing capacity of service providers on accountability and sensitizing community members on their right to receive quality interventions. All this is achieved through community engagement via radio programming, joint out reaches, influencing the accountability agenda through engagement with partners and policy makers, participation in forums, documentation,  referral of complaints, dissemination of reports and lessons learnt  through workshops and learning events. The service enables members of the public to submit complaints or feedback concerning aid and service delivery through three channels: a toll-free SMS line, a web-based portal, or by filling out paper forms. People with no access to a mobile phone or internet can visit the nearest office of a participating organisation to lodge their complaints. A walk-in option also allows people who cannot read or write to report their cases. Complaints received from affected residents range from sectors such as food aid and health services, to education, planning, housing, public services management and include issues such as quality and timeliness of aid services, non-inclusion, conflict of interest and behavior of staff.
