Upcoming Talk: The New Face of Developing Country Debt

Event Date: January 26, 2015 - 12:00 pm
Location: Social Sciences Building, 120 University Street, room 4006

University of Ottawa, Ottawa

NIHAL KAPPAGODA, Consultant; ROY CULPEPER, University of Ottawa.

Presented by CIPS and the International Political Economy Network (IPEN).

Developing-country debt—a major obstacle to economic and social
progress in developing countries—has preoccupied policy-makers and
practitioners for several decades. Following the resolution of the
Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s, and the debt-relief
initiatives for low-income countries from 1997-2006, concerns about
developing-country debt seem to have receded. However, a growing
number of problems warrant concern, including domestic debt
accumulation, short-term debt and private non-guaranteed debt, and
increasing recourse by low-income countries to international capital
markets. Significant weaknesses remain in developing countries' debt
management capacity at the national level. These and other problems
point to an urgent need to address shortcomings in the international
institutional architecture.

Nihal Kappagoda works as a freelance sovereign debt management
consultant. He has undertaken consultancies for the Asian Development
Bank (ADB), Commonwealth Secretariat, International Development
Research Centre (IDRC), United Nations and World Bank including
training programmes for the staff in Public Debt Management Offices.
Prior to this he worked at the IDRC, Commonwealth Secretariat and ADB.
At IDRC he was the Regional Director in Singapore and later Vice
President Planning. At the Secretariat, he started a program of
advisory services in debt management and launched the CS-DRMS debt
management software now used in over fifty countries. The Secretariat
honoured him with an award for "long-term and outstanding service to
the development of the Debt |Management Programme". He was Sri Lanka's
first Rhodes Scholar and has a Master of Philosophy degree in
Economics from the University of Oxford. In Sri Lanka, he worked at
the Central Bank and headed the External Resources Department which
handled the country's external borrowings.

Roy Culpeper is a Senior Fellow at the University of Ottawa's School
of International Development and Global Studies, Adjunct Professor at
the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, Carleton
University, and a Fellow of the Broadbent Institute. He is Chair of
the Group of 78, and Chair of the Coalition for Equitable Land
Acquisitions and Development in Africa. From January until May 2011 he
was a Fulbright scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington,
D.C. From 1995 until 2010 he was President and Chief Executive Officer
of The North-South Institute, Ottawa. Earlier in his career he was an
official at the World Bank in Washington, the federal Departments of
Finance and External Affairs in Ottawa, and the Planning Secretariat
of the Government of Manitoba in Winnipeg. Roy Culpeper obtained his
Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Toronto. He has published
widely on the issues of international development, finance and global

Free. In English. Registration is not required. Seating is limited and
available on a first come, first served basis.
