Tell us about any alleged misuse in development cooperation

Finland’s development cooperation is carried out by means of public funds. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs is responsible for the use and monitoring of these funds. We take all misuse seriously.

You can report any misgivings about the use of Finnish development cooperation funds through our service. Misuse can involve, among other things, bribery, embezzlement, or other inappropriate use of funds.
