IMF Creates Resilience and Sustainability Trust to Help Vulnerable Countries

The Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has decided to create a new facility named the Resilience and Sustainability Trust (RST), which will come into effect on May 01, 2022. 
Objective: To guide low-income and vulnerable middle-income countries in addressing longer-term structural concerns that pose macroeconomic risks, including climate change and pandemics.

  • The aim is to establish a trust with at least USD 45.8 billion in resources in order to balance the demands of potential contributors and borrowers.
  • The RST requires close coordination with the World Bank and other international financial institutions (IFIs) to operate successfully.

Working of the Resilience and Sustainability Trust (RST):
i.The RST will increase the impact of the US $ 650 billion Special Drawing Rights (SDR) allocation, implemented in 2021, by channelling resources from economically stronger members to countries with the greatest needs. 
ii.The RST will become the third pillar of the IMF’s loan portfolio, in addition to the General Resources Account and the Poverty Reduction and Growth Trust. 

  • To help create resilience against long-term risks to balance of payments stability, the RST will provide policy support as well as affordable longer-maturity financing (with a 20-year maturity and a 10½ -year grace period).

iii. RST financing will be accessible to around three-quarters of the IMF’s 190 member nations, including low-income countries, most middle-income countries, and all small developing countries.

  • To gain access to the money, member countries will require a package of high-quality policy initiatives, sustainable debt and adequate repayment capabilities. 

Note: Special Drawing Rights (SDR) – SDR is an international reserve asset created by the IMF to supplement the official reserves of its member countries. A basket of currencies defines the SDR: the US dollar, Euro, Chinese Yuan, Japanese Yen, and the British Pound.
