As part of the process of financial globalisation, financing, or lack of financing, for endeavours in the areas of environmental issues, population growth, food security, health and technological changes will have direct and indirect impacts on global financial stability and hence global prosperity. To this end, the IGF has been engaged in global issues that have direct and indirect financial impacts on systemic risk, global financial stability and world security. The IGF has published several high impact research works and organised a number of policy fora that deal with the above issues. The IGF’s engagement and research with eminent researchers and joint work with the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank are part of the overall objectives of providing global leadership in factors that contribute to global prosperity.
