Measurement in Financial Inclusion


The increasing prominence of financial inclusion as a tool for development and growth has spawned extensive data-gathering initiatives to measure, understand and improve it. The result is a variety of new measurement frameworks that leverage this data.

Early indications suggest that the financial-inclusion strategies developed and guided by these measurement frameworks may not be leading to the results that policymakers want to achieve.

Our work under the global i2i programme produces dedicated research in the area of financial-inclusion measurement.
