The Global Savings Groups Conference is a biennial event that engages a large and diverse community of stakeholders, develops and promotes improved standards of practice, mobilizes knowledge, strengthens partnerships and alliances, and creates opportunities for cross-organizational learning. Each event in this series has also served as a catalyst to increase the scale, sustainability and impact of Savings Groups in the host country – and region. SG2015, in Zambia, was the third event in the series and engaged close to 400 participants representing 147 organizations from 44 countries.
