NDF - Financing for climate change and development projects

Integrity and anticorruption

NDF is working actively on preventing, detecting and following up on potential misconduct and misuse of funds in its projects. Any person observing or suspecting on reasonable grounds that corruption, fraud, collusion, coercion or obstruction (“prohibited practices”) is occurring in any NDF-financed activities is encouraged to report such concerns to the Fund.

Any allegations of prohibited practices will be investigated and followed up on in accordance with NDF's Anticorruption Guidelines.

NDF's Policy on Anticorruption and Integrity incorporates similar principles relating to integrity and anticorruption as its main co-financing partners have adopted, including a commitment to enforce cross-debarments triggered under the Cross-Debarment Agreement of 2010 between several  multilateral development banks. Under the policy, corruption, fraud, collusion, coercion and obstruction are prohibited in relation to NDF projects and NDF funds.
