Maya Declaration: The AFI member commitment to financial inclusion
What is the Maya Declaration?
The Maya Declaration is the first global and measurable set of commitments by developing and emerging country governments to unlock the economic and social potential of the 2.5 billion ‘unbanked’ people through greater financial inclusion. More than 90 such countries – representing more than 75 percent of the world’s unbanked population – have supported the Declaration. Each country makes measurable commitments in four broad areas that have been proven to increase financial inclusion.
- Create an enabling environment to harness new technology that increases access to and lowers the costs of financial services;
- Implement a proportional framework that advances synergies in financial inclusion, integrity, and stability;
- Integrate consumer protection and empowerment as a key pillar of financial inclusion;
- Utilize data for informed policymaking and tracking results.
