The debt burden in many African countries, which stabilized during the 2000’s thanks to debt reductions and high economic growth, has been showing signs of deterioration amid the heightened uncertainty in global economy and the declining commodity prices. The structure of debt is significantly changing with the growing obligations from the non-traditional public as well as commercial lenders, which put additional difficulty on their debt management. African countries and the international community must work together to avoid the risk of another round of debt crises while meeting the financing needs toward the achievement of SDGs.
