Ask G20 to suspend Debt to fight coronavirus
As the world continues to battle coronavirus, the pandemic is wreaking havoc on the economies of the poorest countries and could push millions of people into hunger and poverty.
Governments desperately need money to fund emergency plans, but are faced with the impossible choice of saving lives or making debt repayments. We can do something about it.
G20 Finance Ministers, the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) will soon meet to take a decision on debt relief for the world's poorest countries. Add your voice to our petition urging them to suspend all debt repayments without delay.
To G20 representatives, the World Bank and IMF:
The world's poorest countries need every resource they have to tackle the economic impacts of coronavirus and prevent millions of people from falling into extreme poverty. We call on all official, private and multilateral creditors to immediately suspend debt repayments for 2020 and 2021 for the most vulnerable countries.
