    A substantial amount of financial resources are likely to be invested for mitigating Climate Change through REDD+. The workshop will facilitate mutual learning between experts and practitioners from the forest & climate and anti-corruption communities to strengthen corruption prevention mechanisms in this area.

    The objective is to harness the potential of integrating preventive anti-corruption measures in designing a successful implementation of REDD+. The workshop should enhance a substantive anti-corruption perspective to the debate around REDD+ at an early stage.

    Therefore, there will be three inputs and substantive discussion with the objective to reach a common understanding of REDD+ within the audience, provide an overview on corruption risks being discussed at both international and country level and how they have been addressed so far, and identify further corruption risks areas and possible fields of future action and cooperation.
