The IMF and World Bank started a review of their Debt Sustainability Framework (DSF) for low income countries, a framework used for determining examining whether countries are, and will in the future, be able to maintain payments on their sovereign debt. On this basis, the reviews are also used, among other things, to decide how much countries are allowed to borrow.
Center of Concern together with more than 35 organizations and networks wrote a submission with recommendations for the ongoing review. The role of investment to pay for the Sustainable Development Goals, the independence required in the assessments and the analysis of liabilities linked to Public Private Partnerships are among the issues addressed by the submission.
