19 November, Geneva – DFI Urges Better Debt Relief at UNCTAD Conference

Thursday, 02 January 2020 12:38

UNCTADDFI presented on a panel on How to Do Debt Relief Better at the UNCTAD Debt Management conference in Geneva on 19 November. The presentation covered two key issues: why more debt relief is needed; and how to do it better than in the past. DFI urged that debt relief should build on the principles established by the HIPC initiative, but also: be based on SDG funding needs; comprehensively include all types of creditors (including bondholders, China, PPP funders and domestic creditors); and occur more rapidly and with less conditionality. To read the presentation, click here.
