The Financial Inclusion Strategy (FIS) Peer Learning Group was established as a support mechanism for countries developing and implementing financial inclusion strategies. Many countries are increasingly interested in developing national financial inclusion strategies as frameworks to guide policy and regulatory reforms and to encourage the alignment of public and private sector stakeholders under a unified vision and shared goals.
The commitments that AFI members have made under the Maya Declaration and to the G20 through the FIS Peer Learning Group reflect this global trend.
The FIS Peer Learning Group members have worked to facilitate peer learning on the different methodologies to strategy development and implementation across the network, while the group provides a platform for peer reviews of draft strategies and action plans, develops joint guidance on aspects of national strategy formulation and implementation, and supports the capacity of members to develop and implement financial inclusion strategies, including through connections to expert stakeholders.
