'Overcoming climate change is the most critical challenge of the 21st century. The flows of funding to assist developing countries in combating climate change have already begun and are likely to be ramped up to many billions of US dollars a year within a few years. The transparent utilisation of these funds will determine their effectiveness. At this critical juncture, the Global Corruption Report provides the most comprehensive assessment of the safeguards that need to be put in place to build trust and strengthen integrity in these processes. Framed by Transparency International's wide expertise in anti-corruption and accountability, this book will serve as an essential reference for anyone engaged in climate policy and decision-making' - Saleemul Huq, Director, International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD), Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB)
