The Role of Inclusive Financial Systems in a Digital Economy
The spread of digital technologies is transforming economies and the digital economy is a powerful economic driver. But significant knowledge gaps exist and there is concern around "digital harms". In response, CGAP developed a high-level narrative to illustrate how the digital economy affects the growth of inclusive financial systems. This narrative is designed for financial inclusion practitioners who want to understand how financial systems and the digital economy intersect. The narrative also illustrates how financial services can be positioned to optimize impact in the digital economy.
