The side event on “Financing a sustainable recovery: the role of debt-relief instruments” was organized during the 2021 High-level Political Forum. It aims to:
• Bring together the UN system and other entities to discuss ongoing work on debt-relief instruments;
• Strengthen international and regional discourse on debt relief, especially in relation to climate change preparedness and the upcoming COP26;
• Explore the range of instruments and initiatives that can best facilitate efforts on debt relief, in order for countries in need to get back on track towards achieving the SDGs.
