The focus of the webinar is to discuss the role of debt transparency in reforming the international debt architecture. The discussion will be Africa specific and tackle issues such as sovereign defaults and debt relief measures, the role of the international organisations (e.g. IMF and the EU), the private sector and the potential path towards debt sustainability via transparency and conditionality.
