Climate change is a growing concern to us all.

The IMF is calling for a strong, legally-binding, comprehensive global agreement ensuring ambitious reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and social justice and long-term employment policies as an integral element of climate policy. Through its work on climate change, IMF and its affiliates are contributing to the global effort to cutting emissions and transforming jobs.
