How corruption affects climate change

Various corrupt practices, such as fraud, bribery, undue influence, illegal campaign financing, and political and regulatory capture, are common in policies and sectors such as energy, forestry, agriculture and livestock, and transportation.

Although corruption undermines mitigation and adaptation efforts, it is still a rarely debated topic by actors in the climate field. In this session, we will discuss the multiple connections between climate and corruption, including solutions and synergies between the UN Convention against Corruption and the Paris Agreement.
