Climate Governance Integrity: Safeguarding the Climate and Climate Finance against Corruption

As of: January 2020

Objective and activities

By reducing the risks for the loss of money under the table, the project increases trust and the volume of climate finance being put on the table. Building on successes to date: a strengthened and engaged civil society and greater clarity on existing corruption risks, the project contributes to transparent and accountable climate policies, practices and results from the global to the local level, and to cementing emerging civil society leadership and independence on the topic at the regional level. Working globally, and with selected TI chapters across three regions, the project implements anti-corruption safeguards and solutions through education, targeted research, monitoring and advocacy actions. Critically, it gives voice to victims and witnesses of corruption, ensuring the most vulnerable are not doubly impacted – by climate change and corruption.

State of implementation/results

The project works through a large number of submissions (oral and written), text proposals and larger studies with four global funds (GCF, CIFs, AF, GEF) towards rules that effectively protect climate finance against corruption

  • Activities in partner countries on selected topics (Peru: REDD+; Bangladesh, Maledives: Adaptation finance; Mexico, Kenya: renewable energies/ new technologies)
  • TI-activities extended to Nepal (Adaptation finance), Ruanda (renewable energies/ new technologies) and Costa Rica (REDD+)
  • Kenya: TI supported NEMA (NIE) – 3 new studies on Adaptation Governance Standards, a GCF procurement report, looking at case studies of two clean energy projects in Kenya and Mexico, and best practices for monitoring REDD+ projects
