Global Economic Recovery

Current Initiative


The Rockefeller Foundation’s Global Economic Recovery team is working with a broad alliance of nations, institutions, and individuals to strengthen and augment institutions that have been held back by obsolete rules and procedures. We’re focused on building a global financial architecture that can mobilize substantially more, and better quality, financing.

What happens next on global economic reforms will signal the world’s commitment to long-term gains rather than short-term payback. Urgent action is needed to preserve the promise at the core of the global economic order, making it adaptable to the 21st century’s challenges and opportunities.

Impact Stories

  • The upcoming Spring Meetings of the IMF and World Bank in Washington, D.C. will decide whether major economies and financial institutions will take bold steps to reform global finance, crucial for addressing climate change and development financing challenges.
  • We are focused on confronting climate change, in part, by reimagining our global financing system to support the most vulnerable countries and communities – people like 60-year-old Kenyan farmer Julia Muroko.
