The Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Debt Initiative, a major innovation in development finance, was designed to relieve the high external debt of some of the world's poorest nations.

The HIPC Debt Initiative addresses a key obstacle to economic growth and poverty reduction, but it also contains multiple and overly-ambitious objectives.'Debt Relief for the Poorest' is an independent evaluation which assesses the progress and prospects of the HIPC Debt Initiative achie
