International Monetary Fund (IMF)
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is an organisation of 184 member countries. It was established to promote international monetary cooperation, exchange stability, and orderly exchange arrangements; to foster economic growth and high levels of employment; and to provide temporary financial assistance to countries to help ease balance of payments adjustment. The work of the IMF involves surveillance, financial assistance, and technical assistance.
The IMF contributes to the MDGs through its advice, technical assistance, and lending to countries, as well as its role in mobilizing donor support. Together with the World Bank, it assesses progress toward the MDGs through an annual Global Monitoring Report.
