afrodad logoThe African Forum and Network on Debt and Development was created over 20 years ago as a pan African platform and organisation for lobbying and advocating for debt cancellation and addressing other debt related issues in Africa.


Today AFRODAD is concerned with ensuring that the African continent does not slide back into being heavily indebted and is focused on influencing African governments to institute and implement policies and practices for sustainable development and eradication of poverty through development and implementation of sustainable debt policies; transparent, accountable and efficient mechanisms for mobilization and utilization of domestic resources; and effective use of international public finance.


 

eurodad logoEurodad (the European Network on Debt and Development) is a network of 46 civil society organisations (CSOs) from 19 European countries, which works for transformative yet specific changes to global and European policies, institutions, rules and structures to ensure a democratically controlled, environmentally sustainable financial and economic system that works to eradicate poverty and ensure human rights for all.

Eurodad's vision is a world with:

Economic justice for all – an end to relative poverty and to the concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a few.

Fair, democratic, accountable and transparent governance – at local, national, regional and global level where all countries have a say, and all people can exercise their right to participate.

Finance that serves the people – and helps ensure human rights for all, and an environmentally sustainable planet. This means it is publicly regulated to meet social ends and recognise environmental limits, and enhances systems of redistribution to ensure economic justice.

  • Debt‎ and Lending
  • Tax, Transparency, Accountability and Corruption
  • Consumer Financial Protections
  • Trade Policies
  • Preventing Financial Crisis and Austerity

Congressional Quarterly cites our work as one of the last bipartisan efforts left in Washington. We are Christians, Jews, Muslims and other faith traditions working to build an economy that serves, protects and promotes the participation of the most vulnerable.
