GDP Center Joins Task Force on Climate, Development, and the IMF

On October 4, 2021, the Global Development Policy (GDP) Centeran affiliated regional center at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, announced its participation in the new Task Force on Climate, Development, and the International Monetary Fund (TCD IMF). 

TCD IMF is a consortium of experts from around the world convened to support the Intergovernmental Group of Twenty-Four (G24) and the Vulnerable Group of Twenty (V20) Ministers of Finance in advancing a development-centered approach to climate policy at the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The Task Force will engage in and utilize rigorous, empirical research to inform policies that align international financial stability and growth with global climate goals.

Recognizing that a shift into the climate policy landscape will require significant reform to the IMF’s surveillance and advisory functions and finance toolkit, the Task Force will produce a series of research products while engaging in critical policy dialogue over the next 18 months to provide empirical, rigorous research that can inform this transition.
