ABSTRACT
The article discusses emerging issues and challenges on the Multilateral Debt Relief Initiative (MDRI). The main objectives of the MDRI are to deepen debt relief to Highly Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) by providing 100 percent cancellation of eligible debt and compensating African Development Foundation (ADF) and International Development Association (IDA) for the debt cancellation in order to preserve the long-term financing capacity of both institutions.
