Building an effective fraud risk management program requires solid understanding of how and why fraud is perpetrated. Discuss the components of a fraudulent act, different types of fraud schemes and the impact fraud has on organizations. Also, analyze why individuals commit fraud and why the threat of punishment alone doesn’t deter potential fraudsters. The risk of fraud is just one of the many types of risks to be managed by an organization. But to let this risk fall out of focus can bring catastrophic results.

People Management is probably one of the richest, more demanding and key areas of humanitarian work. It has a direct impact on operations, on the quality of the humanitarian response and on people affected by disasters and conflicts. On one side a growing pressure to reach a meaningful and quick impact in volatile and sometimes dangerous environments can create severe stress affecting staff’s well-being and motivation, on the other side the “duty of care” concept imposes a new legal framework to humanitarian organisations.
