Global public debt reached an all-time high of $92 trillion in 2022. 37 out of 69 of the world's poorest countries were either at high risk or already in debt distress, highlighting the inherent inequality in the international financial system. The session will look at the drivers of the global debt crisis as well as solutions, including the UN Secretary-General's call for an SDG Stimulus and a deep reform of the global financial architecture.
