It includes economic and climate indicators such as greenhouse gas emissions; financial, physical and transition risk indicators such as carbon footprint-adjusted loans; cross-border indicators; and policy indicators. The dashboard was built in collaboration with international organizations and aims to support policy makers and the general public, in addition to the IMF’s work.

The CID will develop over time in response to the needs of users and will remain subject to statistical feasibility.
