Debt Conferences


The 13th Debt Management Conference took place from 5 to 7 December 2022 in the Palais des Nations, Geneva, Switzerland, and was followed by the DMFAS Advisory Group meeting on 8 and 9 December 2022


The conference is primarily organized as an in-person event. Accordingly, UNCTAD is encouraging government, international and academic institutions who wish to participate in the conference to nominate representatives to travel to the Palais des Nations in Geneva. Although there will be the possibility for persons to listen to speakers remotely, they will not be able to actively participate by asking questions or making statements. All participants, whether in-person or joining remotely, must register in advance in the United Nations Indico system. 

UNCTAD organizes the Debt Management Conference every two years, providing a regular forum for the sharing of experiences and exchange of views between governments, international organizations, academia, the private financial sector, and civil society on current issues in debt management. It brings together senior national and international debt managers and experts from around the world to discuss some of the most pertinent topics in both external and domestic debt, debt management and public finance today. 

The presenters will be a balance of national experts, academics and representatives of civil society and of international and regional organizations. Debate and discussions will be promoted.
