Debt and Structural Adjustment

Since 1990, Witness for Peace has monitored the effects of external debt, structural adjustment programs, and the effects of International Financial Institutions' (IFI) policies in Nicaragua and elsewhere in Latin America.

Following the lead of our partners on the ground, Witness for Peace advocates for debt cancellation and the end of conditionality from IFIs, playing historic roles in the Jubilee USA coalition as well as the movement to transform the World Bank and IMF.

Today, Witness for Peace's efforts focus on the unconditional canceling of Nicaragua's debt to the Inter-American Development Bank and removing IFI conditions that prevent social investment and privatize public services.
