The UNCDF strategy, Women as Builders of the Digital Economy, focuses on creating strategic partnerships at a global, regional and country level, and complementing them with market facilitation and deep technical assistance to affect change on the ground. It leverages our on-the-ground presence and relationships with ministries of finance, central banks, telecommunications
regulators, other relevant policy makers, as well as the private sector (including banks, telecommunications companies, fintechs and micro‑finance institutions) and civil society to remove the barriers to women’s economic empowerment. We will do this by implementing a tailored strategy on a country-by-country basis integrated into existing work that will both remove barriers and accelerate increased access to critical services, ultimately increasing the number of women that earn and control their money.
