​The Office of Development Policy and Debt leads the U.S. government’s efforts to promote economic growth and poverty reduction in developing countries through engagement with the multilateral development banks, including the World Bank and the regional development banks.

The office works with the U.S. Congress and other government agencies to secure U.S. funding commitments to the multilateral development banks. The office also advises on potential reforms and innovative financing proposals for development, and formulates the U.S. position on issues coming before the Paris Club, an informal group of creditors who seek coordinated and sustainable solutions to payment difficulties for debtor countries.
