key factors trends influencing new jubilee strategic plan
Key factors/trends influencing new Jubilee strategic plan
  • Success in winning debt cancellation and with Jubilee Act means we need to strategize on how to keep pushing on our core agenda
  • Food, fuel, and financial crisis now hitting the Global South – and the US
  • Strengthening global South-North Jubilee movement
  • Financial crisis opens up space to address systemic challenges – the need for rules to stop irresponsible finance, stop harmful conditions, etc.

Jubilee USA Network

overall goal
Overall Goal

Overall Goal: From 2009-2012, Jubilee USA Network will work towards the eradication of global poverty and sustainable development by building a strong movement and political will for cancellation of unjust debts for countries of the Global South without harmful economic conditions.

Jubilee USA will also work to achieve new global economic policies and trade rules that eradicate poverty, promote sustainable human development and prevent recurring, destructive cycles of indebtedness.

Jubilee USA Network

sub goal 1 definitive cancellation of unsustainable and illegitimate debt
Sub-Goal #1: Definitive Cancellation of Unsustainable and Illegitimate Debt

By 2015, we will have created the political will for the implementation of an international agreement for expanded debt cancellation for impoverished nations without harmful conditions, which will help enable these nations to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s), and for the cancellation or repudiation of debt on the grounds of illegitimacy in at least 3 cases.

sub goal 1 definitive cancellation of unsustainable and illegitimate debt6
Sub-Goal #1: Definitive Cancellation of Unsustainable and Illegitimate Debt
  • Outcome #1: Win support of the US administration for a new deal on debt, resulting in additional, definitive debt cancellation on the agenda of the G-8 summit by 2010. Push for the implementation of a new international agreement through the 2011 summit and on to 2012 when the US will host the G8.
  • Outcome #2: Win support from the US government for recognition of illegitimate debt and win a comprehensive audit by an official US government agency of past lending to 2 countries by 2010.

sub goal 1 definitive cancellation of unsustainable and illegitimate debt7
Sub-Goal #1: Definitive Cancellation of Unsustainable and Illegitimate Debt
  • Outcome #3: U.S. is meeting its commitment to fully fund it share of existing debt cancellation commitments under the MDRI by end 2011.
  • Outcome #4: By end 2011, there is greater information on mechanisms for and uses of funds released by debt cancellation, and Jubilee USA has supported civil society in at least 3 countries (post-HIPC) to ensure accountability for the use of funds.

Jubilee USA Network

sub goal 2 towards responsible global finance
Sub-Goal #2: Towards Responsible Global Finance

By 2015, we will have achieved progress towards a just and responsible international finance and trading system which allows developing countries significantly greater flexibility to choose just economic policies, gain independence from foreign assistance, and helps to avoid future debt crises.

Jubilee USA Network

sub goal 2 towards responsible global finance9
Sub-Goal #2: Towards Responsible Global Finance
  • Outcome #1: By 2012, there will be significant progress towards the adoption of strong rules that make global finance more responsible and just. By 2012, Congress will pass the Stop Vultures Act.
  • Outcome #2: We will work with partners globally and in the Climate Equity Coalition to keep the World Bank from making loans for climate adaptation while building the political will for grants from the U.S. government and via the United National Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

sub goal 2 towards responsible global finance10
Sub-Goal #2: Towards Responsible Global Finance
  • Outcome #3: End Harmful IFI Conditionality. By end 2009, Congress will authorize gold sales for the IMF in exchange for some gold sales going for debt relief and tangible, enforceable restrictions on the IMF’s ability to impose harmful economic conditions on poor countries. Continue campaigns to support expedited consideration for countries stuck in the HIPC process because of excessive IFI conditionality – especially Liberia, Haiti, and DRC.
  • Outcome #4: Link Debt and Trade. By end of 2011, in partnership with trade groups, trade unions and grassroots organizations, we will have developed and established debt-based criteria for assessing trade agreements in order to prevent future indebtedness.

Jubilee USA Network

sub goal 3 increased organizational capacity
Sub-Goal #3: Increased Organizational Capacity

By 2012, we will have significantly increased Jubilee USA's organizational capacity by expanding staff, growing the Jubilee Congregations program and developing a larger funding base.

  • Outcome 1: Over next 4 years, we will have obtained a total of at least $400,000 in additional funding over current levels
