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.
