The Green New Deal offers a bold and transformative vision for rethinking sustainable development in the US. It has also spurred discussions about how these policies can be scaled up to a global context. Fundamental to crafting a ‘Global Green New Deal’
is reassessing the role of international financial institutions, whose undemocratic market fundamentalism presents a major barrier to sustainable development. With the US’s influential voice at these institutions, it has the potential to play a key role in
their transformation.

This briefing will draw on the following proposals:

Building upon these reports, this panel of experts will analyze what a Green New Deal means for US engagement in international financial institutions. Additionally, the discussion will explore the ways a reformed multilateralism can support sustainable development,
economic justice, and a green global economy, while overcoming the historical roadblocks erected by banks, corporations, and their allies in government.

This briefing is open to staff and interns. 

Sincerely, 

Ilhan Omar                                      Adriano Espaillat
