2019 AFI Global Policy Forum: Using Technology for Inclusion of Women and Youth

Event location: 
Kigali, Rwanda
11 Sep 2019 - 13 Sep 2019

Hailed for its gender equality policies and equal participation of women in all spheres of life, the 2019 GPF aims to showcase the experience of Rwanda and highlight how the use of technology will bring progress in financial inclusion of the most vulnerable groups, especially women and youth.

Since the adoption of the Denarau Action Plan (DAP) at the 2016 GPF, Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) members have pledged to cut the gender gap in half by 2021 within their respective jurisdictions. The 2019 GPF is an occasion to take stock of the progress made and set out steps ahead to reach the goal of halving the financial inclusion gender gap. The event hosts will also share and discuss how AFI members are developing and implementing youth-specific financial inclusion policies, as well as what are the commitments that need to be made as a global policy leadership alliance to make financial inclusion related services and products more accessible to youth.

Hosted in partnership with the National Bank of Rwanda
