Leaving no one behind in access to Social Protection payments: The implications for policy, technology, e-payments and regulation

With the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, UN Member States pledged to ensure “no one will be left behind” and to “endeavour to reach the furthest behind first”. But, what does this mean for the inclusive social protection and financial inclusion agenda? What is required from a policy, technology, e-payment solutions and legal and regulatory perspective? How do stakeholders ensure that social protection schemes and programmes are inclusive, delivered responsibly and adopt a human rights based approach? Is it sufficient to “bank the unbanked” and make use of large scale Government-to-Person (G2P) payment programmes to meet financial inclusion targets or is something more required?
Development Pathways is pleased to invite you to spend the morning of 20th February 2020 exploring the nexus between inclusive social protection, technologies and e-payment solutions, payment services law and regulation and responsible financial inclusion. Leaving no one behind is everyone’s responsibility. This event aims to bring together Kenyan thought-leaders from Government, the private sector (banks, MNO’s Fintech, Card Associations), foundations, NGOs and think-tanks to share perspectives and discuss what more needs to be done in Kenya to foster inclusive social protection and responsible financial inclusion. 

Location: Radisson Blu Hotel, Nairobi Upper Hill
