The UK supports climate resilience programmes in the Pacific Region through the multilateral system. This comprises the Multilateral Development Banks (World Bank and Asia Development Bank), United Nations (UN) Agencies (UN Environment Programme and UN Development Programme) and Multilateral Funds (Climate Investment Funds, Green Climate Fund and Global Environment Facility). The UK Aid Strategy sets out our zero tolerance toward corruption. In line with this strategy we expect each multilateral institution to demonstrate that it also applies a zero tolerance approach toward corruption in its projects and minimises risks of corruption through rigorous project risk assessments and monitoring throughout implementation and delivery.
