About the project

EthicalCargo.org is an information clearinghouse, training and outreach project serving the global humanitarian aid, crisis response and peace support communities. We provide tools, training and advice to encourage the adoption of conflict-sensitive logistics guidelines and ethical transportation policies and to support organizations to make better-informed procurement decisions.

This project is part of the work of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute's Countering Illicit Trafficking - Mechanism Assessment Project (CIT-MAP).

EthicalCargo.org is funded by the Humanitarian Aid department of the European Commission (ECHO) and the Swedish International Development & Cooperation Agency (SIDA) with support from the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
