Climate governance e-learning course. Transparency International. 2015

Transparency International’s e-learning course is designed to provide any interested stakeholder (from government, civil society, academia, business or others) with an easy to navigate and accessible introduction to key concepts of climate governance. The course can be used by climate change specialists or governance experts to gain an overview of the connections between these two fields. There are three modules available: an introduction to climate finance governance, a follow-on module that covers climate finance corruption risks and solutions, and finally a dedicated module on building integrity in REDD+. The course is free, open to anyone and available in English, French and (partly) Spanish. The courses take approximately 12 hours to complete, can be taken at the user’s own pace and participants receive a certificate for the completion of each module.

Using corruption risk assessments for REDD +: An introduction for practitioners. Williams, A. 2014.

Corruption risk assessments (CRAs) are both an analytic and due diligence exercise to identify issues associated with, contributing to, or otherwise facilitating corruption in a particular setting. An area where improved understanding of corruption risks, and the adaptation of development aid interventions to take them into account, is seen to be of crucial importance in the implementation of REDD+ programmes. This U4 Issue considers two recent CRA approaches for REDD+ in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Philippines. The intention is to provide development practitioners who may be unfamiliar with the study of corruption, or with the methods employed by CRAs, with an overview of the approaches currently available for REDD+ schemes. Referring to recent literature on the evidence for the effectiveness of donor anti-corruption approaches, the paper discusses some practical considerations for development practitioners to improve the way in which CRAs are used.
