The COVID-19 crisis could mean over half a billion people being pushed into poverty – and already excluded groups like women will be hit the hardest.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Treasurer Josh Frydenberg is heading to a G20 meeting this weekend – a critical opportunity for wealthy governments like Australia to make decisions that could help save lives from COVID-19. The fastest way to do that would be cancelling external debt payments for low-income countries, so much-needed money can be spent on healthcare instead of making payments to international creditors.
But for G20 governments like Australia to act, they need to hear from people like you.
