Building trust, mitigating risks and driving inclusive economies
Download 115 pages

The digitization of payments is a proven solution to tackling many development challenges and accelerating progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals. The UN Principles for Responsible Digital Payments advocate for what it means to be responsible, who needs to be responsible, and how to be responsible in the digitization of payments. They are fundamental to ensuring that the process of payment digitization is inclusive and sustainable. This is especially crucial for women, who are more likely to find themselves outside the formal financial sector.  

This extensively consulted resource responds to the UN Secretary General’s Roadmap for Digital Cooperation to build “Digital Inclusion” and “Digital Trust and Security”. It serves as a practical guide for governments, companies and international organizations embracing responsible digital payments in their journey to building trust, mitigating risks and driving inclusive economies.
