APMDD Coordinator Lidy NacpilPhilippines (30 March 2021) -- “The multiple crisis has indeed imbued a much greater urgency to address the debt problem that so many countries have been grappling with for decades. It is a problem that past debt relief measures have failed to solve and present measures are also failing… The debt problem must be understood more broadly, deeply and sharply”.


APMDD Coordinator Lidy Nacpil delivered the intervention at a UN High Level Event on International Debt Architecture and Liquidity held March 29 that aimed to address debt vulnerability as an issue of “sustainability” or capacity to pay.

Nacpil stressed however, that the debt problem is "more than just a problem of liquidity and insolvency". She noted that the “tiny relief that is the temporary suspension of bilateral debt payments for too few countries” will not solve a systemic and structural problem.

The World Bank Group must once and for all end its support for all fossil fuels. This is our urgent demand as the World Bank finalizes a new five-year climate action plan. We are people’s organizations and movements from Asia working in communities impacted by coal, gas and oil projects funded directly and indirectly by the World Bank Group. These projects have decimated rainforests, destroyed biodiversity, displaced people, locked many countries in the South into dependency on the fossil fuel industry, and contributed heavily to the escalation of the climate crisis.
