Sovereign Debt and Climate Finance Conference

Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) & IDEAs | May 3- 5, 2024 | Gordon Hall, UMass Amherst

This three-day conference explored why the ongoing debt emergency remains unresolved, how it worsen the climate crisis and alternative strategies for climate finance.

Different sessions considered the channels through which debt stress and inadequate climate spending stoke each other, and discuss ways of addressing these pressure points urgently; assess ongoing debt stress resolution efforts and propose alternative templates for viable restructuring of debt and pathways to sustainable development; and discuss the inadequacies of the prevailing climate finance architecture and propose alternative structures that are fit for purpose.
