Climate Finance Integrity Programme

Climate finance is a fast growing envelope of public money, set to reach US$100 billion a year by 2020. Halting global warming will require large-scale investment in renewable energy and forestation projects – two of the surest ways to reduce harmful carbon emissions and their impact on our climate. The cost of adapting to climate change will also be huge. From coastal defence walls, to irrigation systems, to cyclone-proof housing, extreme and unpredictable weather patterns will necessitate far-reaching changes to our physical environment.

Corruption threatens to derail these efforts. Embezzlement, fraud and bribery reduce the likelihood that climate money ends up where it should, and that mitigation actions are genuine. At Transparency International we are assessing risks and finding solutions.

Learn more about our work tracking climate finance in the Maldives, Kenya, Mexico, Peru, Bangladesh and the Dominican Republic, and our work promoting transparency and accountability in REDD+ in Papua New Guinea, Vietnam and Indonesia
