The 'International Debt Report' (IDR), formerly 'International Debt Statistics' (IDS), is a longstanding annual publication of the World Bank featuring external debt statistics and analysis for the 121 low- and middle-income countries that report to the World Bank Debtor Reporting System. IDR 2022 includes (1) analyses of external debt stocks and flows from 2010 to 2021 for these countries; (2) an assessment of the evolution of the creditor composition of external debt over the past decade with particular emphasis on the emergence of nontraditional bilateral creditors and private creditors and how this has impacted the structure of borrowers' public debt portfolios and debt servicing costs, which complicates the debt restructuring process; (3) a focus on how the World Bank has sought to enhance data quality and transparency against the backdrop of rapidly changing global debt dynamics (including an increase in commercial borrowing, nontraditional lenders, and new instruments) that contribute to debt transparency issues; (4) tables and charts detailing debtor and creditor composition of debt stock and flows, terms volume, and terms of new commitments, maturity structure of future debt service payments and debt burdens, measured in relation to gross national income and export earnings for each country; and (5) a one-page summary for each country, plus global, regional, and income-group aggregates showing debt stocks and flows, relevant debt indicators, and metadata for 6 years (2010 and 2017†"2021). Unique in its coverage of the important trends and issues fundamental to the financing of low- and middle-income countries, 'International Debt Report 2022' is an indispensable resource for governments, economists, investors, financial consultants, academics, bankers, and the entire development community.
