On September 26th, 2013, Center of Concern team member Aldo Caliari spoke at “From Principles to Action,” an event on the Norwegian Debt Audit and the UNCTAD Principles on Responsible Sovereign Lending and Borrowing. The event, held in the occasion of the High Level Special Event on Millennium Development Goals, will take place at the UN Headquarters in New York, and is cosponsored by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, UNCTAD, Jubilee USA, Eurodad and the Norwegian Campaign for Debt Cancellation -SLUG.
Speaking on behalf of Jubilee USA he said: "I want to thank the other cosponsors for their willingness to do a side event on this topic at this particular place and time. Yesterday governments approved the roadmap for negotiations towards a new generation of development goals. As the world seeks to advance goals such as eradicating poverty, addressing the situation of countries that continue to struggle with the burden of debt repayments will need to be central part of that new development agenda."
