Finance and Development: The Economics of Climate

IMF F and D
Dear Colleague,
It’s getting hot in here.
For the past several months, the F&D team has been working with some of the world's leading thinkers, researchers and practitioners inside and outside the IMF who specialize in the economic and financial impact of climate change policies.
In advance of COP25 next week in Madrid, today marks the launch of our December 2019 issue of F&D: The Economics of Climate, which points to concrete solutions—driven by technology, innovation, investment, and a dynamic private sector—that offer opportunities for growth. 
We hope you find this curated collection of cutting-edge research and insight meaningful and action-oriented.
