[VIDEO] Civil Society Partnership: Integrity for Climate Action
Civil society organisations (CSOs) play a crucial role in promoting the agenda of transparency and accountability in implementing climate-financed projects. The side event will bring major stakeholders to discuss integrity challenges facing climate projects on the ground and will chart the way towards developing a CSO Partnership Strategy. Panellists will present their experiences working with civil society and examine cases that illustrate the value of a multi-stakeholder approach to promoting integrity in climate action.
This side event intends to launch an extensive, long-term programme of integrity initiatives with partner CSOs ranging from capacity-building activities and awareness-raising campaigns to monitoring and reporting of integrity violations. The IIU is committed to build a framework of sustained engagement with civil society as its partner in enhancing the capacities of GCF Accredited Entities to address integrity gaps and as a force multiplier in ensuring integrity in GCF projects.
