The IMF’s “Green Fund” Proposal

IMF Building, by JavierPsilocybin under CC License
 
Just eight weeks after IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn ventured the expertise of his organization to help the international community to “think outside of the box” on climate financing, the IMF staff has delivered: print-fresh from Washington’s 19th Street comes a short, but content-heavy paper by two IMF economists on how an international Green Fund partially financed by climate-SDRs could be set-up with the goal of generating some US$ 100 billion per year by 2010.

Two articles deal with the IMF's "Green Fund" proposal:

A Useful Burden-Sharing Approach? The IMF’s “Green Fund” Proposal (26 March 2010)

The IMFs Sales Pitch for Climate SDRs (5 February 2010)
