The discussion involved data analysis and insight into the impact of debt on Global South countries amidst a pandemic and a climate emergency from Iolanda, as well as powerful insight into the direct and detrimental impact of debt on Zambia from Eugene. Marilyn Croser followed these powerful words by discussing the actions Jubilee Scotland are taking in our campaign to Cancel Unjust Debt.
the Glasgow Climate Dialogues provided a platform for Global South experts to engage with key actors in Scotland ahead of COP 26.
