Task Force on Climate, Development and the IMF | G-24

Task Force on Climate, Development and the International Monetary Fund

The G-24 Secretariat is a member of the Task Force on Climate, Development and the International Monetary Fund, a collaboration of experts from around the world utilizing rigorous, empirical research to advance a development-centered approach to climate change at the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Climate change and policy responses to climate change pose significant risks to financial and fiscal stability, poverty and inequality and the long-run growth prospects of the world economy.

As the only multilateral, rules-based institution charged with promoting the stability of the international financial and monetary system to enable longer-run growth, the Task Force argues that the IMF has a central role to play in the transition to a low-carbon and resilient global economy.

The Task Force seeks to fill a crucial knowledge gap with reports, technical papers, policy briefs and blogs that span a variety of issues, including transition spillover risks, the fiscal impacts of green transitions, the IMF's Resilience and Sustainability Trust and more.
