Development needs debt crises solutions – awareness raising in the Czech Republic

In the Czech Republic, the topic of financing for development (FfD) and unsustainable debts of many developing countries is not present in the public or political debate. This project supports a broader and professional debate in the Czech Republic on how better FfD should contribute to the SDGs’ implementation, focusing on SDG 17 for having an important role in achieving other SDGs:

  • 17.2: ‘Developed countries to implement fully their official development assistance commitments’
  • 17.4: ‘Assist developing countries in attaining long-term debt sustainability’

The projects will focus especially on the problem and solutions of debt crises as a crucial problem for the development of many indebted countries.
