Protect Islands with High Debt and Poverty Rates Before the Next Hurricane Strikes

Thanks to our work together since September, the G7 and world leaders are considering proposals for debt relief when islands with high poverty rates and high debt burdens are hit by hurricanes. As a new hurricane season begins, urge the White House, G7, G20, IMF, World Bank and United Nations to promote debt relief crisis response tools when islands are hit by natural disasters. Please take action now as experts predict that the 2018 hurricane season could be worse than the devastating 2017 season. 

Dear White House, G7, G20, IMF, World Bank and United Nations,

Islands across the Caribbean are still recovering from the 2017 hurricane season. Before the next hurricanes strike, please support debt relief crisis response tools for developing islands wrestling with high debt burdens and poverty rates. Please support an official process for islands affected by hurricanes or natural disasters that:

1.) provides "breathing space" with a temporary debt payment moratorium and
2.) offers a framework to restructure public external debt to provide financing for rebuilding and recovery

Respectfully,
