Policy Position 04/2011: Safeguarding mitigation efforts for sustainability

Filed under - Climate governance

Policy position published 22 November 2011
The objectives of climate change mitigation projects are undermined when they do not meet sustainable development criteria and transparency standards. In such cases, international mitigation mechanisms are weakened, corruption risks are increased and investment is compromised. To avoid such outcomes, institutional safeguards, effective decision-making structures and public oversight mechanisms are needed.
