COVID-19 has upended life around the world and threatens to reverse decades of progress by pushing as many as 100 million people into extreme poverty. The stakes are high and the future is uncertain.
Policymakers and providers have acted fast. Yet with so much uncertainty still ahead, what’s next? The final day of Financial Inclusion Week included sessions that look at the next stages of managing and recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring that the needs of low-income people are central to the decisions made by policymakers, donors, investors, researchers, and others working to advance inclusive finance.
This page also includes content on topics other than the five themes of Financial Inclusion Week 2020.
