Dear Colleagues,

It is encouraging to see the great energy and the many activities on the SDGs and the Agenda 2030. This UN Agenda is not a far-fetched idea which only exists on paper. Many different actors are working on the great transformation – from women’s organisations to scientists and corporate actors. The involvement of many active young people is even more refreshing. This is an agenda of the people.

The World Bank and IMF must stop fuelling inequality

We are a group of 133 civil society organisations from many different backgrounds and countries, representing millions of people. Together we are demanding the IMF and World Bank stop fuelling the global inequality crisis. We work for changes that are fundamental to achieving the just, equal and sustainable world we all desire. We are united in believing that all of our struggles are both worsened by, and are the product of, the global inequality crisis. We are coming together to fight inequality, which is fuelling injustices in land, health, education, taxation, worker’s rights, women’s rights, climate change and human rights. We are united in believing that the World Bank and IMF are too often fuelling inequality. We call on the World Bank and IMF to ensure that all operations and activities they finance contribute to reducing inequality.
