Digital financial services offer real hope to help the world get back on track to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. New evidence demonstrates how responsible digital financial inclusion creates the foundation for inclusive growing economies. Building on the success of the first compendium, Igniting SDG Progress through Digital Financial Inclusion (2018), this 2023 edition takes a stronger focus on women and climate change across all SDGs.
This compendium features extensive evidence-based examples for 13 SDGs relevant to the wide benefits of inclusive digital financial services. It also features a foreword from H.M. Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, written in her capacity as the United Nations Secretary-General's Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development.
