Debt Distress and Climate-Resilient Development in Sub-Saharan Africa
Anzetse Were co-authors this white paper to provide insight and data on the debt-climate nexus in Africa--and how the continent can come out of the debt and climate change crisis stronger and more resilient. African countries need significantly more voice and representation in the international economic architecture in general, and debt restructuring in particular. Further inaction will not only inflict material damage globally in the form of climate change and lost market opportunities, but also further erode the legitimacy of the architecture itself.
