The global response to climate change will demand unprecedented international cooperation, deep economic transformation and resource transfers at a significant scale. Corruption threatens to jeopardize these efforts. Transparency International#xE2;#xAC;"s Global Corruption Report: Climate Changeis the first publication to explore the corruption risks related to the implementation of climate policies and the development of carbon markets. These risks range from undue influence on policies and regulations, to misallocation of funds, and manipulation of markets, reporting and verification mechanisms. More than 50 leading experts and practitioners contribute, covering four key areas: * Governance: Investigating major governance challenges towards tackling climate change. * Mitigating climate change: Reducing greenhouse gas emissions with transparency and accountability. * Adapting to climate change: Identifying corruption risks in climate-proofing development, financing and implementation of adaptation. * Forestry governance: Responding to the corruption challenges plaguing the forestry sector, which accounts for 20 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions. The Global Corruption Report: Climate Changeprovides essential policy analysis to help policy-makers, scholars, practitioners and other stakeholders understand these risks and develop effective responses at a critical point in time when the main architecture for climate governance is being developed.
