Launch of the Financial Inclusion Compass 2022

The Financial Inclusion Compass 2022 is an e-MFP Survey of Financial Inclusion Trends which collect sector opinions on emerging short, medium, and long-term trends in the financial inclusion sector.

New trends and future focus areas have been introduced in this 5th edidition – among them food security, financial health, strategic responses to climate change, machine learning and blockchain, and mainstreaming gender equity.

The survey shows that client protection remains under threat from the relentlessness of digitalisation; agri-finance and SME finance are among the focus areas of the future, and financial inclusion is at its core about resilience – of clients, certainly, but also of institutions and of investors in the face of risk.

The survey on which this paper is based was open in May and June 2022, giving practitioners, funders, researchers, and support service providers the opportunity to evaluate and describe the importance of various current Trends, rate and give opinions on Future Priority Areas, and provide open-comment qualitative input on the expected (and hoped-for) direction of financial inclusion progress.
