Why the IMF Resilience and Sustainability Trust is not a silver bullet for Covid-19 recovery and the fight against climate change
Posted by Cecilia Gondard · January 27, 2022 4:35 PM · 1 reaction
Last week the IMF published a blog disclosing some key design features of the Resilience and Sustainability Trust (RST), confirming that countries will need to have a pre-existing programme to be eligible and that programmes will rely on conditionality designed in conjunction with the World Bank and other institutions.
