Africa’s Rising Debt: Implications for Development Finance

OCP Policy Center and the Global Economic Governance Africa (GEGAfrica) programme will organize a workshop September 26 on “Africa’s Rising Debt: Implications for Development Finance”. The aim of this event is to share with the Moroccan community the first findings of the study, which addresses an issue of primary concern for African countries and attempts to devise concrete policy recommendations. The report draws from the Moroccan authorities’ experience in conducting their fiscal policy since the financial crisis of 2008. This report also sheds light on the Nigerian experience, considering recent macroeconomic developments.  Through this event, OCP Policy Center and GEGA expect to gather viable feedbacks from different stakeholders, such as government institutions, academia and think tanks, to help strengthen their analysis and further their policy recommendations.
