Smart goals, smart policies
The Maya Declaration lay the groundwork for AFI members to develop and adopt five accords that outline specific goals that target different aspects of financial inclusion.
Sasana Accord: Evidence-based financial inclusion
Outlines concrete commitments to financial inclusion policymaking and strategies that will see evidence- and data-based results, and contribute to accelerated progress and the measurement of impact.
Maputo Accord: Small and medium enterprise (SME) financing
Supports access to finance for SMEs to promote sustainable inclusive development and spur innovation. The Maputo Accord followed on from Turkey’s G20 Presidency, which made support for SMEs a key theme.
Denarau Action Plan: Gender and women’s financial inclusion
Focuses on gender and women’s financial inclusion, identifying measures that AFI members can take to increase the number of women with access to quality and affordable financial services globally to close the financial inclusion gender gap.
Sharm El Sheikh Accord: Financial inclusion, climate change and green finance
Recognizes the dual threats of financial exclusion and climate change as key barriers to financial stability by reaffirming that financial inclusion policies should help achieve positive outcomes for climate change, green finance and sustainable development.
Sochi Accord: Financial Technology (FinTech) for Financial Inclusion
Commits members to developing regulatory or policy interventions that balance innovation in technology-based financial services with oversight.
Renews members’ commitments to network accords and the Maya Declaration, and agrees on specific actions to accelerate financial inclusion for disadvantaged groups and leave no one behind.
