The Civil Society Policy Forum (CSPF) has become an integral part of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank Group Spring and Annual Meetings, providing an open space for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to dialogue and exchange views with World Bank Group and IMF staff, their peers, government delegations, and other stakeholders on a wide range of topics.

The CSPF will convene in Washington DC from Tuesday, October 4 to Friday, October 7, 2016. The program will include an orientation session on the World Bank Group; a roundtable with World Bank Group Executive Directors; a Town Hall meeting with World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim and IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde;  a CSO reception with senior management of both institutions; and about 40, mainly CSO-organized, policy dialogue sessions that reflect the diversity of CSO policy concerns.

These sessions will be selected from submissions sent to us during a call for proposals that ran from July 11 to August 19. The sessions will be open to all participants who have registered for the 2016 Annual Meetings.

CSO registration for the Annual Meetings and the CSPF is now CLOSED.

Please note that the IMF and the World Bank are in the process of modernizing and updating processes for the Policy Forum – see here for the latest updates.
