Addressing Governance and Corruption Challenges in the Response to Climate Change (COP28 Blue Zone Event)
8 December 2023
Investing in climate change resilience requires large scale financing. The potential for corruption to exacerbate the challenge, undermine the effectiveness of the response and increase costs means that better governance must be at the heart of the climate response. Acting fast will mean leveraging the existing anticorruption architecture and catalyzing coalitions in a highly coordinated way. In this joint event with the World Bank, panelists discussed corruption vulnerabilities that are specific to the green transition and how to address them.
