Climate Change Policy Assessments

The CCPA is a joint IMF-World Bank assessment introduced on a pilot basis in 2017 and provides an overarching assessment of countries’ climate strategies—as articulated in their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and other government documents. CCPAs are intended to help countries build coherent macro-frameworks for responding to climate change, which could improve prospects for attracting external finance and put future revisions to NDCs on a sound footing.
