Integrating Forcibly Displaced Persons Into a National Financial Inclusion Strategy

Sustainable development and inclusive economic growth can only be achieved if those who are forcibly displaced are not left behind in pursuit of broader national financial inclusion goals.

Accessing formal financial services can Enable forcibly displaced persons (FDPs) to overcome difficult situations, apply their skills and competencies, and realize their future potential. This helps them to contribute to the economic development of their host community or even country, and mitigate the inherent challenges (that) forced displacement poses to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The goal of this guideline note is to equip financial policymakers and regulators to apply a forced displacement lens within the context of their national financial inclusion priorities so that their NFIS successfully advances the financial inclusion of FDPs and enhances their economic participation in a dignified manner.
