You are invited to Aid Talks #5 Webinar hosted by Reality of Aid-Asia Pacific and Aid/Watch Australia. Join our guest speakers as they discuss climate finance and decolonisation of aid
As the world faces a food, fuel and debt crisis brought about by the pandemic, increasing conflict and progressing climate emergency, donor countries and Official Development Assistance (ODA) have a crucial role in mitigating the impacts of these crises for the marginalized.
With potential impacts of the global COVID-19 pandemic on sovereign debt for the poorest countries in the Asia Pacific region there is a growing regional and international call for the cancellation of all external debt payments due to be made in 2020.
This Aid Talks webinar seeks to examine why aid must be decolonised and the long overdue need for honest reflection, acknowledgement, and remedy for colonisation across all facets of modern life, including within the aid sector.
Join our panelists from European Network on Debt and Development (Eurodad), Pacific Islands Association of Non-Government Pacific Islands Association (PIANGO), IBON International and Jubilee Australia who will present and discuss on the need to cancel external debts.
