Spring Meetings 2019

At the 2018 World Bank-IMF Annual Meetings in Bali, Indonesia, the President of the WBG and the UN Secretary General convened a meeting of 40 finance ministers to drive forward greater ambition on the climate agenda through climate-informed fiscal policymaking. At COP24, it was announced that Chile and Finland would lead a global coalition of Finance Ministers aspiring to boost collective engagement on climate action.

The Coalition will be formally launched during the 2019 Spring Meetings, where Finance Ministers will sign on a set of principles to guide the initiative, reiterate commitment to enhance climate action, and illustrate next steps to take the agenda from principle to action plan over the summer and fall, at the UNSG Climate Summit and COP25.
