Debt Management Facility Stakeholders' Forum 2022 | Virtual

📅14-16 March 2022

Debt burdens were surging in many developing countries even before the COVID-19 pandemic began. Increased funding needs, rising funding costs, price pressures, and stretched asset valuations are putting extra pressure on debt managers.

Climate-related risks pose an increasing danger to people’s lives and public finance, requiring debt managers to take a closer look at Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors while meeting funding needs. Under the circumstances, many countries will need to strengthen their debt-management capacity and enhance debt transparency.

The 12th Debt Management Facility (DMF) Stakeholders’ Forum, Navigating Debt: Meeting Tomorrow’s Funding Needs, will explore how this can be done. The forum, organized by the World Bank, will take place March 14-16, 2022. It will set the scene for high-level discussions on potential debt-management strategies in a period of high and persistent debt burdens for many low- and middle-income countries. It will also examine the use of innovative financing instruments in debt management and highlight the importance of legal frameworks for sound debt management and debt transparency.
