Debt Sustainability and ADF Grant Eligibility

Under the previous ADF replenishments, the eligibility of countries for grant resources was linked to expenditures that aimed to address specific operational priorities, such as education, health, water and sanitation, HIV/AIDS programs, post-conflict reconstruction, and natural disaster assistance.

Since 2005, the Joint World Bank-IMF’s Debt Sustainability Framework (DSF) methodology has been used to determine each country’s risk of debt distress, the applicable financing terms and eligibility to grants.
