    • CLIMATE ADAPTATION FINANCE GOVERNANCE STANDARDS - A NEW APPROACH PILOTED IN THE MALDIVES AND BANGLADESH

      Climate finance – money intended to help at-risk countries prevent climate change and adapt to its effects – can be vulnerable to corruption. Without strong governance standards, climate finance can be diverted from vital prevention and adaptation activities into private bank accounts and vanity projects, often leading to catastrophic effects for countries already suffering. This report presents a new framework to create and assess governance standards for climate finance. It is for climate adaptation stakeholders worldwide from the public and private sector, international agencies, and civil society who want to ensure that climate finance going into countries where they are working meets the needs of climate-vulnerable communities.

    • Adaptation Finance Governance Standards - Country Report - Bangladesh

      Assessments of climate finance governance carried out by Transparency International in 2013 in Bangladesh, Dominican Republic, Kenya, Mexico and the Maldives revealed a complex and fragmentary funding landscape that is complicating efforts to track financial flows, and to ascertain who should be held accountable for decisions and results. Apart from that, TIB research identified that there are challenges to ensure clear and consistent system of budget classification, shortage of better accountability metrics, state audits and evaluation system to monitor performance, track climate finance volumes, target sectors and projects. There are also challenges to ensure effective consultation through a formalised space for citizen participation at all stages of adaptation project’s cycle – from design, to procurement, to monitoring and evaluation, to complaints management. To improve the governance in adaptation finance, taking into consideration of the above-mentioned challenges, this research...

      TIB-TM Integrity Talk on Climate Finance Governance
      Transparency, Accountability and Participation 25-27 April 2018, Bangkok, Thailand  Concept Note South Asian countries are amongst the most vulnerable to global climate change, with Bangladesh, the Maldives, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka predicted to be the worst affected.1 The Paris Agreement, adopted on 12 December 2015 and entered into force on 4 November 2016, saw 197 governments make commitments to limit the temperature rise and to protect the lives, livelihoods and economies of the people experiencing the effects of climate change.  The Agreement 2 reinforced the need for mobilizing increased finance to implement actions through cooperation, collaboration, participation and an “enhanced transparency framework”. Despite commitments by developed countries long before the Paris Agreement, to provide “new and additional” funds to less-developed and vulnerable countries at a rate of $100 billion a year for adaptation and mitigation...

    • Governance aspects in the context of Ecosystem based Adaptation (EbA) financing- Experiences from Bangladesh

      Climate finance refers to local, national or transnational financing drawn from public, private and alternative sources of financing. Climate finance is critical to addressing climate change because large-scale investments are required for adaptation and mitigation. Particularly, climate finance is important for adaptation, for which significant financial resources will be required for community and ecosystem based adaptation. Therefore, ensuring good governance is also equally essential for Financing Ecosystem based Adaptation (EbA) projects. To cope with the negative impact of climate change, Bangladesh has one of the most advanced adaptation plans in place with a vast amount of EbA-related opportunities. However, monitoring findings of TIB on community-based adaptation and EbA initiatives financed through the domestic Climate Fund in Bangladesh show thatbridging the gaps between the planning and implementationof project activities is often challenging.

    • Concept Note of South Asian Debate in CFPI project sight

      Increased transparency, accountability and integrity are pre-requisites to ensure effectiveness in the implementation of adaptation and mitigation actions to fight climate change. As developed countries pledged to provide ‘new and additional’ finance to cope  with adverse effect of climate change, the volume of climate finance is likely to increase for the use of developing countries which are at the receiving end of impact of climate change. On the other hand, countries that are adversely affected by global climate change also happen to be widely affected by governance deficit and corruption which may turn out to be a predicament against the expected level of climate funds to these countries.  Click Here for full Concept Note

       

    • TI-Bangladesh Presentation in COP-21

      Climate change will likely have the most severe effects on developing countries like Bangladesh, whose citizens depend heavily on natural resources and systems for their basic livelihoods and as such, are most vulnerable to effects to climate change. Given these challenges, there is a clear need to adapt. Communities, many of which already face poverty challenges, will need to adjust their livelihoods, employ alternative technologies, and find new ways of managing scarce resources. Indeed, climate change adaptation has become an issue of human rights and justice in view of the daunting costs that the impacts of climate change pose for countries who have contributed least to the problem.
