Transparency International’s 2010 Global Corruption Report (GCR) on Climate Change will be launched in next spring. It will be the first comprehensive publication of its kind to explore the corruption risks related to tackling climate change.
It will provide policy-makers, business and civil society with essential analysis for understanding corruption risks in climate governance and make the case for integrating essential transparency and integrity.
Dr.Robin Hodess Director Policy and Research at Transparency International has said Climate Change is arguably the greatest Governance challenge the world has ever faced. The global response to climate change will demand unprecedented international cooperation, deep economic transformation and resource transfers at a significant scale.
“Corruption threatens to jeopardise these efforts. Many of the institutions, governance processes and initiatives designed to mitigate and adapt to climate change are vulnerable to a broad range of corruption risks.” She made these comments at the Transparency International Annual Membership Meeting held at the Imperial Queens Park hotel in Bangkok Thailand 0n 09th November 2010.
Addressing Climate Change requires a degree of urgency, trust, cooperation and solidarity that test the limits of the conventional mechanisms and institution to manage public goods she said.
The 2010 Global Corruption Report will bring together the perspectives of more than 50 experts and practitioners. From international policymaking to national mitigation and adaptation strategies, the Global Corruption Report will draw on the expertise of the anti-corruption movement and the knowledge of climate change experts.
The Global Corruption Report will consist policy processes and governance, mitigations, adaptation and special section on Forestry according to Dr.Hodess
