As the Annual Meetings of the IMF and World Bank draw to a close, Jean Saldanha, Director of the European Network on Debt and Development (Eurodad) reflects on a crucial, but disappointing, week in development finance.
The European Network on Debt and Development is a civil society network advocating for democratically-controlled, gender-just and human rights-based financial and economic systems.
Eurodad is a network of 49 civil society organisations from 20 European countries working for transformative yet specific changes to global and European policies, institutions, rules and structures to ensure a democratically controlled, environmentally sustainable financial and economic system that works to eradicate poverty and ensure human rights for all.
Eurodad seeks to promote fundamental reforms to how debt crises are prevented and resolved, and put the rights of people ahead of debt service.
Eurodad advocates for greater transparency and enhanced coordination of taxation systems worldwide.
Eurodad works to maximise the potential of development and climate finance as a catalyst for much needed economic, social and ecological transformation.
