UNSGSA 2023 Annual Report to the Secretary-General

Written under the theme "Creating a Path Toward Resilience and Opportunity," the 2023 Annual Report showcases the strategic work of H.M. Queen Máxima of the Netherlands in her capacity as the United Nations Secretary-General's Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development (UNSGSA) over the last year. It focuses on three key technical priorities, including financial health, inclusive green finance, and responsible financial inclusion in the digital economy.

The report details important strides made via a range of key activities and initiatives, such as country visits to Brazil, Morocco, and Tanzania, along with an array of impactful meetings, engagements, media appearances, and speeches. 

In a concerted effort to champion access and usage of safe, affordable, and effective financial services, the UNSGSA's recent activities hold particular significance. Notably, these endeavors seek to address the financial needs and financial health of traditionally underserved groups, including the poor, women, smallholder farmers, and micro-, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs).
