Debt Sustainability Framework for Low-Income Countries

This one-week course presents the Joint IMF-World Bank Debt Sustainability Framework for Low Income Countries through presentations, discussions, and hands-on exercises. Lower-income countries face significant challenges in meeting their development objectives, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), while ensuring external and overall public debt remain sustainable. The primary aim of the LIC DSA is to guide countries’ borrowing decisions to match their need for funds with their current and prospective ability to service debt, tailored to their specific circumstances.
