TIU Background

Transparency International Uganda

Transparency International Uganda (TI-Uganda) in partnership with Transparency International Secretariat is implementing a Waverly Street Foundation (WSF) funded project titled “Climate Governance and Integrity” implemented in 2 districts of Uganda.

The overall goal of the project is; “Enhanced transparency, inclusivity and accountability of climate policy and governance frameworks so that climate efforts are shielded from corruption, and reach the groups most vulnerable to climate change. This project is summarised under the following three outcome areas;

  1. Climate Policy – Policy making processes relating to climate action are more transparent, accountable and inclusive.
  2. Climate Action – Improved accountability, integrity, and oversight of climate-related action globally and locally
  3. Climate Justice – Improved justice outcomes for victims of environmental crime & corruption.

The project is predominantly concerned with safeguarding global efforts to tackle climate change; this includes promoting transparency, equity and accountability in how climate finance is governed and utilized for adaptation and mitigation, as well as allocations for loss and damage.


The global effort to address climate change is largely contingent on the protection and sustainability of the environment, and actions that impact the environment invariably also impact climate action. This project thus focuses more broadly on policy and action that has the potential to significantly affect climate action; including interrelated sectors such as energy transition, environmental protection, transport and extractive industries.
