An End to Debt Déjà Vu
2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Es Saadi Marrakesh Resort
The world is facing a new debt crisis, with low-income countries at particular risk. Breaking out of the current debt crisis and avoiding future ones will require a fundamental shift in public oversight and accountability for the way that governments borrow and manage debt.
As a side event to the WB/IMF Annual Meetings in Morocco, the International Budget Partnership (IBP), the National Democratic Institute (NDI), and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are convening a high-level panel discussion on October 12 to discuss how we can develop a new vision for a domestic accountability framework for public debt that could support more responsible fiscal and debt policy management.
This discussion will focus on exploring how legislatures, audit institutions, and civil society can engage with governments to promote more effective negotiation, contracting, and monitoring of government debt operations.
This event is an opportunity to learn about the latest thinking on domestic debt accountability, and to contribute to the development of new ideas and strategies for addressing this critical issue.
Join us for this important discussion on how to break the cycle of debt crises and build a more sustainable future for all.
The event will be held in English and French. We will be serving light refreshments.
