Anti-corruption in REDD+

Share

Introduction 

Reducing emissions from the global forest sector has an important role to play in both mitigation and adaptation. The United Nations’ Collaborative programme to Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (UN REDD Programme) assists developing countries in building capacity to reduce emissions and participate in a future REDD+ mechanism under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). As part of its mandate, the programme supports national systems for transparent, equitable, credible and accountable management of REDD+ funding. Accordingly, it generates knowledge products and provides practical guidance to partner countries to identify and mitigate potential corruption risks in the design, implementation and payment distribution processes of REDD+.

Staying on Track: Tackling Corruption Risks in Climate Change

pdf-iconolink-boton
Abstract: This report identifies the corruption risks in relation to two elements of the climate change response of particular importance to developing countries: adaptation, and reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries (REDD+). Adaptation is particularly important for developing countries in view of their vulnerability, limited capacity to adapt and lesser historical responsibility for the causes of climate change.
