The Bretton Woods Institutions, 75 years on: reform or risk irrelevance.

The Bretton Woods Institutions were built on the ruins of an old world-order, at the end of World War II, and the dawn of a new world order, marked by the birth of many new nation-states and the onset of the cold-war.

Making debt work for development: Wrap-up of the 12th UNCTAD Debt Management Conference

The 12th UNCTAD Debt Management Conference titled “Making debt work for development” took place in Geneva this week. At one of the best attended policy conferences ever, several hundred participants – including Eurodad staff, members and partners - discussed topics such as how to tackle the unfolding developing country debt crisis, debt sustainability analyses for a new debt landscape, new debt transparency initiatives, and more effective debt workout mechanisms. Participants agreed that urgent action is needed to address the new wave of debt crises, and called for more political will.

A Global Green New Deal – new UNCTAD report outlines a financing plan

The debate about a Green New Deal has recently been reinvigorated in both sides of the Atlantic. In Europe, the Green New Deal is part of the priorities of the European Commission’s President-elect Ursula von der Leyen. And at the UN in New York last month, sustainable development was featured in a series of global Summits, including the Climate Action Summit. In response, UNCTAD used the momentum to  launch the 2019 edition of the Trade and Development Report (TDR) which analyses the new deal from a financing perspective, identifies constraints and outlines innovative financing options.
