Global Debt Monitor: Reassessing the Pandemic Impact

This edition will offer a fresh look at rising debt vulnerabilities as economies worldwide recover at different speeds and with widely varying capacity to manage persistently high debt levels.


 Our staff presentation and panel discussion will focus on policy challenges for both mature and emerging markets, including potential inflationary pressures, rising volatility in international capital flows and the need to finance the fight against climate change. We will also cover the growing push to strengthen ESG performance, including in emerging and developing markets where efforts to improve governance and fiscal transparency can support stronger and more stable capital flows, underpinning broader sustainable development goals.
