Panel II: Developing durable solutions to recurrent debt crises

Growing debt levels are hampering implementation of the 2030 Agenda in a growing number of countries across the globe. The pandemic has exacerbated the debt challenges in many developing countries. Debt relief measures in response to the pandemic such as the DSSI by the G20 provided breathing space for eligible countries, but more durable solutions are urgently needed to prevent and resolve debt crises and retain fiscal space for SDG investments. Fiscal challenges also highlight the need to expand concessional finance for the most vulnerable countries. This session will examine both immediate additional steps, as well as longer-term solutions.

Moderator: Mr. Jeremy I. Bulow, Professor, Economics at Stanford Business School
