Making Finance Work for Refugees, Displaced and Host Communities

The world is witnessing the highest levels of displacement on record. The number of forcibly displaced populations is growing every year, with prolonged displacements becoming more common. To address this challenge, it is crucial to focus on long-term, sustainable solutions that support dignified, inclusive, and comprehensive programs for refugees, displaced individuals, and host communities. Various actors from the humanitarian and development sectors are increasingly engaging in these efforts. Facilitating self-reliance and empowerment is essential, and financial inclusion plays a significant role in achieving this goal.

The "Making Finance Work for Refugees, Displaced, and Host Communities" training is designed to support financial services providers (FSPs) who currently serve or are considering serving these vulnerable populations with financial services.
