Join the Center for Global Development and E3G for a comprehensive discussion on the IMF’s role in the climate issues confronting its emerging market and developing member countries.

Some stakeholders have advocated for the IMF to "stay in its lane" – but what exactly does this mean? How should IMF surveillance, lending, and technical assistance contribute to assisting developing country authorities in progressing on climate-related fronts?

Panelists will delve into the multifaceted role of the IMF concerning climate-related matters. Questions surrounding the IMF's adherence to its role and responsibilities, especially in navigating the macroeconomic and financial impacts of climate change and the green transition, will be explored.
