This self-paced, 7-modules online course is an introduction to risk management at UNHCR.

 Managing our risks and opportunities proactively is crucial to maintaining the integrity and efficiency of our operations, as well as upholding the trust placed in us by those we protect. As everyone in UNHCR is responsible and accountable for managing risks, the course was designed and developed for all personnel at any level, function and location, as well as for external partners.

 In this course you will learn how to assess, treat, monitor, report and communicate risks and opportunities. A detailed fictional scenario spanning the entire risk management process will guide you through your learning journey with short and engaging modules.

 The course was developed by the Enterprise Risk Management Service (ERM) within the framework of the ERM 2025 strategy. This course is also available in French and Spanish.

UNHCR has developed this e-learning course to help partners enhance their skills in investigating allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse against beneficiaries of humanitarian assistance. The e-learning course is one of the deliverables of the UN High Commissioner for Refugee´s IASC Championship on Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse and Sexual Harassment (September 2019 – December 2020), and closely aligns with his commitment to support partners and working jointly to enhance capacity and accountability. UNHCR initiated this project as a response to specific requests from its partners to support the strengthening of their capacity to conduct high quality investigations of allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse. It is based on commonly used principles and standards for administrative investigations within the UN system, as well as UNHCR´s training programme on investigation for partners. Some aspects of the process may have to be modified to reflect a specific organization´s internal policies and procedures, as well as local laws and regulations.
This course is  available in English, Arabic, French, and Spanish.

The Fraud Awareness Basic course is aimed at representatives and staff members of UN agencies, civil society organizations, government agencies and any other organizations involved in delivering humanitarian and development aid. The objective of the course is to provide attendees with the skills to understand the most common types of fraud, spot signs and red flags, and make the right decisions throughout their day-to-day work. 

The course is available in English, Arabic, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Bengali, Hindi and Balkans.

‘Saying No to Sexual Misconduct’ is an interactive and innovative learning package that aims to raise awareness among IASC partner staff and ensure they have the skills and tools to define, detect and respond to sexual misconduct.
