OSS considers any kind of corruption and fraud as very detrimental to the realization of its mission. For this purpose, OSS made a statement on zero tolerance for fraud, financial mismanagement and any other forms of malpractice. This declaration recalls in particular that OSS has adopted a Whistleblowing (anti-fraud) Policy and has implemented precautionary measures.
OSS has also a set of policies that demonstrate the principles and procedures to assess the environmental, social and gender impacts during the preparation and implementation of measures carried out by OSS in the following circumstances:
- Role as regional implementing entity for the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the Adaptation Fund

The policies form an integral part of the Environmental and Social Risk Management System (ESMS) and are intended to build on the existing policies, operating procedures, and project cycle of OSS.
