Financial Resilience of Low-Income Countries: How can development lenders better protect borrowers: From unsustainable debt levels on the way to net zero?

The OECD and TCX cordially invite you to a conference that will explore the roles of donors, lenders, and borrowers in building debt sustainability through improved currency risk management.

Trillions of dollars of investments to low-income countries are needed to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. This funding will not materialize without markets and policy makers stepping up to mitigate currency risk in development finance and lend to low-income countries responsibly.

Speakers will discuss the impact of local currency depreciations on sovereign debt sustainability. What solutions exist to remove currency risk from low-income countries? How can we rethink concessional finance to make instruments like green bonds/loans in local currency more accessible and affordable? What is needed to build flourishing international risk markets and build DMO capacities to manage risks?
