The Global Transparency Initiative (GTI) will be holding a three-month consultation starting 28 September (international right-to-know day), on a draft charter of transparency principles which the international financial institutions should uphold. The GTI brings together civil society IFI monitors with campaigners on freedom of information. Interested individuals are invited to visit the website where a copy of the draft charter can be downloaded, or contact the charter’s lead author – Toby Mendel – directly.
This briefing emphasises the interdependence between the SDGs and the Paris Climate Agreement, in terms of ensuring that all new infrastructure is climate resilient and aligned with the low- or zero-carbon pathways required to avert catastrophic climate change – which would render achieving the SDGs impossible.
