U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre

This Anti-Corruption Helpdesk brief was produced in response to a query from a U4 Partner Agency. The U4 Helpdesk is operated by Transparency International in collaboration with the U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre based at the Chr. Michelsen Institute.

Query

Please provide an overview of courses and expertise for training judges in understanding how corruption may be applied to the field of carbon emission reduction mechanisms.

Purpose

Our agency would like to support enhanced institutional integrity of provincial courts in Indonesia, including by training judges on how corruption may be applied to the field of carbon reduction mechanisms. We would like to know if there is any specialised training in this area that have been previously provided and where expertise is located in this area.

Summary

Climate mitigation strategies such as emission reduction mechanisms have created a need for technical capacity development at national and sub-national levels. Moreover, there is a consensus among experts that climate mitigation strategies will not succeed unless the governance and corruption challenges they pose are effectively addressed. Given the critical role of the judiciary in ensuring good governance, there is now an urgent need to develop capacity among the judiciary to tackle the corruption risks in this emerging area.

Research for this query indicates that currently there are no training programmes for the judiciary that deal specifically with corruption risks in emission reduction mechanisms. In the absence of specific training programmes in this area, this answer aims to point the enquirer towards institutions that have provided or are planning to provide training in related areas – training on environmental law and emission reduction mechanisms for judiciary and legal professionals (without a specific focus on corruption) and training programmes for the judiciary on anti-corruption.
