Debt Sustainability In Low-Income Countries: Course and Hands-On

Description:  The Core Module (Day 1) will provide a solid introduction to the new debt sustainability framework for low-income countries (LICs) and its implications for the terms of lending under IDA-14. Participants will learn how to conduct a debt sustainability analysis under this framework which has been prepared jointly by the Bank and IMF, and will be used for operational purposes going forward. Country case studies will be used to provide practical learning. The Hands-on Module (Day 2) will provide participants training on how to conduct debt sustainability analysis using debt sustainability templates under the new framework. Participants will gain a better understanding of how factors such as exogenous shocks, growth forecasts and debt burdens will impact new lending to countries. Country-specific case studies will be used as examples and participants will work on the computer using Excel-based templates.
