On the eve of the G20 Summit in Hamburg, together with partners from critically indebted countries, the German alliance for debt relief, Bread for the World, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung and WEED – World Economy, Ecology and Development discuss how debt crises can be solved quickly and efficiently in the future.

At the Dialogue Event “We need to talk: Debt20 meets G20”, representatives of the G20 and their institutions will enter into a dialogue with the Debt20, who are comprised of twenty activists, scientists and politicians from indebted countries. The discussion will center on preventing looming debt crises from derailing the attainment of the global development goals.

Members of the Debt20 include the Ecuadorian economist Alberto Acosta, the director of AFRODAD, the African Forum and Network for Debt and Development, Dr. Fanwell Bokosi, and the Grenadian Minister of Economic Development, Trade, Planning, and Labour, Oliver Joseph. They will speak about their experiences and perspectives, together with experts from Honduras, Mozambique, Pakistan, Serbia and Zimbabwe.

Johannes Wolff, team leader for G20 priorities and Dr. Elke Baumann, head of the department for debt rescheduling/Paris Club (both from the Federal Ministry of Finance), as well as Mark Flanagan (International Monetary Fund) and Elena Flores (European Commission) are representing the G20 in the dialogue.

Kristina Rehbein, political consultant at, requests that the G20 assume their self-imposed responsibilities: “The G20 ascribe to themselves a central role in ensuring a stable global financial system. Therefore, they must confront the question of how they want to deal with debt crises.”
