Ongoing dialogue between the World Bank Group and stakeholders—government, civil society, media, academia, the private sector and others—is a critical aspect of our work. Tapping into a broad range of perspectives strengthens the outcomes and accountability of our engagement and helps build enduring partnerships. It is through this dialogue that we can help implement more effective solutions to local, regional and global development challenges. This website is a platform to inform and consult with interested and affected parties on select areas of our work, such as new policies or changes to regulations, Country Partnership Strategies, and global thematic studies and programs.

Global Standard-Setting Bodies and Financial Inclusion: The Evolving Landscape

The G20's Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI) is inviting stakeholders to comment on the 2nd GPFI White Paper, released as a consultative document at the 2015 G20 Summit in Antalya, Turkey.

Since the publication of the first GPFI White Paper in 2011, Global Standard-Setting Bodies and Financial Inclusion for the Poor – Toward Proportionate Standards and Guidance, global standard-setting bodies have taken steps toward financial inclusion, acting on most of the proposed observations and recommendations.

The second edition of the White Paper takes into account the considerable evolution of the financial inclusion landscape since 2011, concluding with observations and recommendations for further action.

The White Paper aims to raise awareness of the changing landscape, inform ongoing work by the standard-setting and other global bodies, and integrate financial inclusion objectives into standards and guidance that can be applied effectively at the country-level.

It takes into consideration the important role that digitization of financial services plays in reaching financially excluded and underserved customers and its implications for the standard-setting bodies.
