Climate finance integrity: corruption and renewable energy projects

The path to a green global economy will require huge investments – and in many climate-vulnerable countries, corruption is a huge risk.

For a clean planet, how can we keep the money clean too?

The event will take place on Tuesday, 28 July, at GIZ’s offices (Reichpietschufer 20, 10785 Berlin) from 13.00 – 16.00.
