Bretton Woods Update

The Bretton Woods Update, published six times a year, is a digest of key World Bank and IMF initiatives, controversial policy trends and debate. It covers a wide range of current official, academic and activist activities and includes commentary from Southern organisations and activists, plus behind-the-scenes insight into the workings of the Bretton Woods Institutions. It is available on the web, in print or can be emailed as plain text.

CIFs Monitor

The Climate Investment Funds (CIFs) Monitor, published two times a year, outlines important recent developments at the World Bank-housed funds and collates ongoing concerns over their operation. It serves as a digest of information and analysis for those interested in and working on climate finance and the multilateral development banks.

Briefings & Reports

“At issue”, a 2000-word briefing on a topical issue, is published bi-monthly with the Bretton Woods Update. In-depth briefings which aim to clarify complex issues in non-technical language are published less regularly.


Comments by southern civil society.

Inside the Institutions

Originally published in the Update, each article in this series aims to give a brief overview of a specific aspect of how the institutions operate.
