Within GEGI, research is conducted across three thematic programs: development finance, financial stability, and trade and investment rules. GEGI also focuses on emerging and cross-cutting challenges such as just transitions, the sovereign debt crisis, and climate change. The initiative hosts a flagship program on?the Task Force on Climate, Development, and the International Monetary Fund and co-leads the Debt Relief for a Green and Inclusive Recovery (DRGR) program.


The Program Manager will oversee the administrative and operational aspects of GEGI with a focused approach to managing multiple projects with competing deadlines. This position collaborates with diverse stakeholders to strategize project plans, forecast costs, co-manage budgets, facilitate seamless communication, and make informed decisions that are aligned with the GDP Center’s overarching priorities.
