New actors and new systems bring new risks: updated Handbook of Good Practices for Preventing Corruption in Humanitarian Operations available

Last week, Transparency International released an updated version of its Handbook of Good Practices for Preventing Corruption in Humanitarian Operations. First published in 2010, the handbook is the culmination of a multi-year project designed to identify potential corruption risks in humanitarian operations, and develop tools for addressing those risks. Developed together with others in the sector, it covers policies and procedures for transparency, integrity and accountability, and shows how to tackle corruption risks from procurement and transport to human resource management and accounting. The 2014 update to the handbook reflects expanded and new content to ensure it remains relevant, useful, and supports our collective efforts in this area. People In Aid members can also now download copies of HR and people management related tools extracted from the updated handbook directly from our Resource Centre.

Resource Centre: new functionality and FAQs

After a few weeks of running our new Resource Centre alongside the existing one, as of Friday 28 November we have switched over fully to a single, new-look Resource Centre. This means that next time users visit the Resource Centre on our website, they will no longer be able to access information through the old, familiar user interface. It also means there have been a few changes to the navigation on the Resource Centre page, so read on for some short FAQs to help with the transition.
