The Climate Governance Network held its first meeting today to address the Climate Governance Integrity Project, a two-year pilot project headed by Transparency International and carried out in six countries including the Maldives and Kenya.
The project will identify suitable methods for allocating funds while establishing governing bodies to oversee climate change policies.
Transparency Maldives will assist the project by determining how authorities use funds received for climate change management and adaptation in the Maldives.
Today, the organisation discussed ways to work together with stakeholders within the project’s framework.
Transparency Maldives also raised concerns that corruption was a risk should governance of the project’s mechanisms and funds fail.
