Managing public debt is crucial. It must start with proper public financial management. That’s why the African Development Bank Group is establishing the African Public Financial Management Academy, in partnership with the IMF. @KGeorgieva @SecYellen @AUC_MoussaFaki

If it wasn’t for the amazing women leaders globally & inside Afg, this country would be completely out of intl radar since Aug’21. These voices for aid, for political engagement, for HR accountability is instrumental. ⁦⁦proud of you all theguardian.com/global-devel…

Another targeted #explosion yesterday in #Kabul reportedly killed 21 & injured 33, including children. Maybe Kabul isn't your city, but imagine if it were. The crimes against these victims are also crimes against us all. We cannot accept normalization of an environment of terror
We deplore yesterday’s attack in a Kabul Mosque, the latest in a disturbing series of bombings which have killed & injured more than 250 people in recent weeks, the highest monthly number of civilian casualties over the last year. (1/3)

One year on, we urge the Taliban to reflect. A window of opportunity remains to take necessary steps to lift Afghanistan & give hope to its people. Without change, things can worsen. The Int Comm will engage with those that respect the rights and are representative of all Afghans

Listen to Afghan women and girls. Remember their words. Even when they’re not on the front page of the news, Afghan women will still be chanting and marching. Not just for themselves, but for every woman who has struggled and yearned to live a life of her own choosing.
Read the stories of women in Afghanistan today. These first-hand accounts capture the fear, anger, and profound sense of loss that pervade the daily lives of Afghan women—as well as the resilience with which they continue to live them. unwomen.org/en/news-stories/…

Afghanistan: The denial of education violates the human rights of women & girls and can leave them more exposed to violence, poverty and exploitation. All students must be allowed to exercise their right to an education.

330 days since the Taliban banned teenage girls from school. The Taliban continue to deprive Afghan women and girls their basic human rights but they will not be muted. Their bravery is awe inspiring

Disturbing reports: #Taliban excessive use of force against brave #Afghan women’s peaceful protest in #Kabul today. Harassment, intimidation & firing of live ammunition violate their freedoms of expression, association and assembly. #Journalists similarly protected under #IHRL
