Open Letter to G20 Finance Ministers and the IMF:
Civil Society Organizations Call for Quick Special Drawing Rights Allocation

COVID-19 spurred health, social and economic crises that hit developing countries the hardest. The pandemic deepened development and inequality challenges and erased years of progress on poverty reduction and women’s rights. Countries continue to face fallen revenues, lower foreign exchange earnings and higher fiscal and debt burdens. Many of these countries cannot afford expenditures vital to bring the pandemic under control, increase social protection to survive lockdowns and prepare to recover with equity and resilience. Of the trillions spent on stimulus packages around the world so far, wealthy countries account for 88 percent, while developing countries account for the rest.

A multilateral solution is needed. One that will not push low- and middle-income economies into further debt distress. To that end, we ask that you urgently support a new allocation of IMF Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) in the amount of US$3 trillion. We believe that an allocation of this size is required to address the real needs in a decisive and sustainable way. In 2009, the international community responded to a crisis of much smaller scope and proportions with an allocation of US$250 billion in Special Drawing Rights. This initiative had a significant role in restoring market confidence and supporting global recovery. Last year, even before the scale of this crisis was clear, IMF estimates placed emerging economies’ financing needs at US$2.5 trillion.

A new and significant allocation of SDRs would enable countries to boost reserves and stabilize economies, helping to minimize other economic losses. It would free up funds urgently needed for the pandemic response, including gender-responsive public health systems, universal social protection and comprehensive vaccine rollouts. It would also provide much-needed foreign exchange resources to countries whose capacity to earn them continues to be severely constrained in the short to medium term. SDRs do not add to countries’ debt burdens, promote debt sustainability and do not represent a loss for anyone – only a gain. Importantly, they would provide a liquidity injection with economic stimulus benefits worldwide.

So far, the international financial response to the pandemic crisis fails to uphold the standard of solidarity we all should expect in the face of such threat. A new SDR allocation would send a strong signal of renewed multilateral coordination that puts life first and is within your immediate reach. We ask for your leadership in ensuring the international community rises up to this historic moment to do what is needed.

    Carta Abierta a los Ministros de Finanzas del G20 y el FMI: Llamado de Organizaciones de la Sociedad Civil a una Rápida Asignación de Derechos Especiales de Giro

    El COVID-19 ha desencadenado crisis de salud, sociales y económicas que afectaron más a los países en desarrollo. La pandemia agravó los problemas de desarrollo y desigualdad y borró años de progreso en la reducción de la pobreza y los derechos de la mujer. Estos países continúan enfrentando una caída en las recaudaciones, menores ingresos en divisas y mayores cargas fiscales y de deuda. Muchos de ellos no pueden permitirse gastos vitales para controlar la pandemia, aumentar la protección social para superar los encierros y prepararse para recuperarse con equidad y resiliencia. De los billones gastados en paquetes de estímulo en todo el mundo hasta ahora, los países ricos representan el 88 por ciento, mientras que los países en desarrollo representan el resto.

    Una solución multilateral es necesaria. Una que no empuje a las economías de ingresos bajos y medianos a mayores problemas de endeudamiento. Con ese fin, pedimos a ustedes que apoyen de manera urgente una nueva asignación de derechos especiales de giro (DEG) del FMI por un monto de US$3 billones. Creemos que se requiere una asignación de esta magnitud para abordar las necesidades reales de una manera decisiva y sostenible. En 2009, la comunidad internacional respondió a una crisis de mucho menor alcance y proporciones con una asignación de 250.000 millones de dólares en DEG. Esta iniciativa tuvo un papel importante en el restablecimiento de la confianza del mercado y el apoyo a la recuperación mundial. El año pasado, incluso antes de que la escala de la actual crisis fuera clara, las estimaciones del FMI situaron las necesidades de financiación de las economías emergentes en 2,5 billones de dólares.

    Una nueva y significativa asignación de DEG permitiría a los países fortalecer sus reservas y estabilizar las economías, ayudando a minimizar otras pérdidas económicas. Liberaría los fondos que se necesitan con urgencia para la respuesta a la pandemia, incluidos los sistemas de salud pública sensibles al género, la protección social universal y la implementación integral de vacunas. También proporcionaría los recursos en divisas que tanto necesitan los países cuya capacidad para obtenerlos continúa muy limitada a corto y medio plazo. Los DEG no aumentan la carga de la deuda de los países, promueven la sostenibilidad de la deuda y no representan una pérdida para nadie, solo una ganancia. Es importante destacar que proporcionarían una inyección de liquidez con beneficios de estímulo económico en todo el mundo.

    Hasta el momento, la respuesta financiera internacional a la crisis de la pandemia no ha respetado el estándar de solidaridad que todos deberíamos esperar ante tal amenaza. Una nueva asignación de DEG enviaría una fuerte señal de una coordinación multilateral renovada, que pone la vida en primer lugar y está a su alcance inmediato. Pedimos su liderazgo para garantizar que la comunidad internacional esté a la altura de este momento histórico para hacer lo que sea necesario.

    Lettre ouverte aux Ministres des Finances du G20 et au FMI : les organisations de la société civile appellent à une allocation rapide de Droit de tirage spécial

    La Covid-19 a déclenché des crises sanitaires, sociales et économiques qui ont frappé le plus durement les pays en développement. La pandémie a accentué les défis en matière de développement et d’inégalité, et effacé des années de progrès en matière de réduction de la pauvreté et de droits des femmes. Les pays continuent de faire face à des recettes en baisse, à une baisse des recettes en devises et à une hausse du fardeau fiscal et de la dette. Nombreux de ces pays ne peuvent se permettre des dépenses vitales pour maîtriser la pandémie, accroître la protection sociale pour survivre aux confinements et se préparer à se rétablir avec équité et résilience. Sur les trillions dépensés pour les plans de relance dans le monde jusqu’à présent, les pays riches constituent 88 pour cent, tandis que les pays en développement constituent le reste.

    Une solution multilatérale est nécessaire. Une qui ne poussera pas les économies à revenu faible ou intermédiaire plus loin dans la crise de la dette. À cette fin, nous vous demandons de soutenir d’urgence une nouvelle allocation de Droit de tirage spécial (DTS) du FMI d’un montant de 3 000 milliards de dollars US. Nous estimons qu’une allocation de cette taille est nécessaire pour répondre aux besoins réels d’une manière décisive et durable. En 2009, la communauté internationale a réagi à une crise d’une ampleur et de proportions beaucoup plus faibles avec une allocation de 250 milliards de dollars US de Droit de tirage spécial. Cette initiative a joué un rôle important dans le rétablissement de la confiance sur les marchés et le soutien à la reprise mondiale. L’année dernière, avant même que l’ampleur de cette crise ne soit claire, les estimations du FMI plaçaient les besoins de financement des économies émergentes à 2,5 trillions de dollars US.

    Une nouvelle et importante allocation de DTS permettrait aux pays d’accroître leurs réserves et de stabiliser leurs économies, contribuant ainsi à minimiser d’autres pertes économiques. Cela libérerait les fonds nécessaires de toute urgence pour la riposte contre la pandémie, y compris par des systèmes de santé publics tenant compte du genre, une protection sociale universelle et des déploiements intégraux de vaccins. Ceci fournirait également des ressources de change indispensables aux pays dont la capacité à les acquérir continue d’être fortement limitée à court et moyen terme. Le DTS n’ajoute pas au fardeau de la dette des pays, favorise la viabilité de la dette et ne représente une perte pour personne – seulement un gain. Fait important, il fournirait une injection de liquidités avec des avantages de relance économique dans le monde entier.

    Jusqu’à présent, la réponse financière internationale à la crise pandémique échoue à respecter le niveau de solidarité que nous devrions tous attendre face à une telle menace. Une nouvelle allocation de DTS enverrait un signal fort d’une coordination multilatérale renouvelée qui donne la priorité à la vie et est à votre portée immédiate. Nous demandons votre leadership pour faire en sorte que la communauté internationale soit à la hauteur de ce moment historique afin de faire ce qui est nécessaire.
