Debt justice in times of COVID-19 and multiple crises

About the Initiative

“Debt justice in times of COVID-19 and multiple crises,” led by Latindadd, a network of 23 civil society organizations in 13 Latin American countries. Their objective is to address capacity building and advocacy work towards expanded and extended debt relief and restructuring, with emphasis on a legal framework for private lenders. They also promote debt sustainability assessment with a 2030 Agenda approach.
