Measuring progress on financial and digital inclusion – live event and webcast
The Brookings Financial and Digital Inclusion Project (FDIP) Report and Scorecard seeks to help answer a set of fundamental questions about today’s global financial inclusion efforts, including;Do country commitments make a difference in progress toward financial inclusion?;To what extent do mobile and other digital technologies advance financial inclusion?; and What legal, policy, and regulatory approaches promote financial inclusion? To answer these questions, Brookings experts John D. Villasenor, Darrell M. West, and Robin J. Lewis analyzed financial inclusion in 21 geographically, economically, and politically diverse countries. On August 26, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings will hold a forum to launch the 2015 FDIP Report and discuss key research findings and recommendations. Financial inclusion experts from the public and private sectors will also join the discussion.
