Summary

Are you a decision-maker in government, business, or civil society?

We invite you to use this compendium to make digital financial inclusion a priority, whether it is allocating financing to build digital infrastructure, digitizing your payments, or passing regulations to ensure digital financial services can be used by everyone.

How can this digital revolution help us reach the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals more quickly? One important answer is through digital financial inclusion. Inclusive digital financial services refer to mobile money, online accounts, electronic payments, insurance and credit, combinations of them and newer fintech apps, that reach people who were formerly excluded. Digital financial inclusion, when provided responsibly and sustainably in a well- regulated environment, not only drives growth, but also enables faster progress toward many of the other SDGs, as this compendium shows.

This compendium is a collaboration between the Office of the United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development (UNSGSA) – Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, the Better Than Cash Alliance, the United Nations Capital Development (UNCDF), and the World Bank.
