The New Nexus: Digital Governance, Digital Financial Services and the SDGs

A series of digital dialogues to explore issues at the intersection of digital governance, digital financial services (DFS) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) across emerging economies.

In partnership with

Cenfri, with support from GIZ and in collaboration with On Think Tanks, is exploring the potential for digital financial services and other digital applications to positively contribute to the SDGs and discussing the concerns about potential risks and negative outcomes linked to aspects of rapid digitalisation and development.

This initiative provides a platform for the development community, academics and regulators to exchange knowledge and share the approaches they are adopting or recommending around governance of DFS so that they can be leveraged to pursue the SDGs.
