From the Jubilee Debt Campaign web site

[...] The poorest 54 countries have debts totalling between US$ 300 and US$ 400 billion, whilst for the poorest 152 countries, it is over US$ 2.5 trillion. [...] These are the latest figures available - there has been some debt cancellation in 2006, but there will also have been new debts taken on. The overall figures are unlikely to have changed hugely.
