Webinar: Promoting Equity and Ensuring Accountability in Climate Change Funding (14th April)

Transparency International (supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, SDC) will host an event titled Safeguarding Integrity for Climate Action: Introducing Transparency International’s Toolkit to Promote Equity and Ensure Accountability in Climate Change Funding. The webinar will explore the impact corruption in climate funding has on global inequality and will discuss proven methods for ensuring that climate funding reaches those that need it most.

Transparency International is a global movement working in over 100 countries to end the injustice of corruption.

The webinar will take place on 14 April 2021, 4:00 – 5:00pm CET (Microsoft Teams)

Corruption + climate change = amplified inequality.

The devastating impact of climate change is well-known. The devastating impact of corruption in climate change funding gets less attention. Each year, 30% of climate funding is potentially stolen – billions of dollars lost to corruption, undermining and stagnating urgently needed mitigation and adaptation measures. Communities in the Global South are left particularly vulnerable as they are often the first exposed to the impacts of climate change such as rising sea levels, droughts, or floods, and are left without the resources to adapt. Corruption in climate funding fuels inequality and widens the global poverty gap. It also leads to environmental crimes like illegal logging or mining, putting whistleblowers and environmental defenders in harm’s way. Without action, corruption in climate funding is a serious roadblock towards fulfilling the SDGs. The good news? Change is possible. By safeguarding integrity in climate governance, we can plug the leaky pipeline of climate funding and contribute to the fight against global inequality. In this webinar, speakers will explore this intersection and discuss proven methods for ensuring climate funding those who need it most.
