Since 2005, UNCTAD´s Debt and Finance Analysis Unit has been implementing a United Nations Development Account project on "Capacity-building for debt sustainability in developing countries".
The project aims to build the capacity of selected developing countries to help them address the problem of indebtedness within their long-term development policy frameworks. It links the management of debt to macroeconomic and structural policies for development and economic governance institution-building, while also taking into account the debt and trade linkages.
Regional workshops have been held in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
The project is now entering its final phase, which will involve hands-on training activities for debt managers, to be organized in close coordination with the DMFAS Programme
