Reforming Global Finance To Support A Just Energy Transition: Implications For IMF Policy Advice
*With apologies for cross-posting*
As COP26 enters its second week, I write to highlight the publication of a new briefing published by ActionAid USA and the Bretton Woods Project, Reforming Global Finance To Support A Just Energy Transition: Implications For IMF Policy Advice.
The briefing is primarily based on the report IMF Surveillance and Climate Change Transition Risks: Reforming IMF policy advice to support a just energy transition by ActionAid-USA and the Bretton Woods Project, in August 2021. It argues that enabling countries to take necessary action on climate change requires major reforms to IMF policy advice.
The briefing also draws on the recommendations and conclusions from a variety of other sources, including the Civil Society Submission Statement on the IMF Comprehensive Surveillance Review, and The Public vs Austerity and Who Cares for the Future? reports by ActionAid.
We hope that the briefing will be of interest. Please do share with any interested colleagues.
With best wishes,
Environment Project Manager
