Financial Inclusion and Climate Change Policy Peer Learning Initiative (FICC)

As of: March 2019

Objective and activities

The Financial Inclusion and Climate Change (FICC) project will provide a global platform for central banks, financial regulators, ministries of finance and other financial inclusion stakeholders to understand the link between financial inclusion and climate change, and learn innovative, proven policy strategies that can help mitigate, and adapt to the adverse impact of climate change. The project will offer peer learning, capacity building, public-private dialogue, institutional diagnostics and other support services for members of the Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) to articulate and implement national policy objectives on financial inclusion and climate change. It is expected that 15 countries will define national policy objectives, and that 5 countries will develop and implement new policy interventions. Over 200 policymakers will benefit from customized training. Lessons from the project will be shared with the AFI network and benefit financial regulators and policy makers.
