As of 2018, more than 90 countries have publicly committed to promoting financial inclusion—and the number will continue to grow. Financial regulators and supervisors in these countries are discovering the value of a structured approach in helping them to implement policies and strategies on financial inclusion (I) alongside their core responsibilities to promote micro- and macroprudential stability (S) and financial integrity (I) and to protect financial consumers (P)—objectives collectively referred to as I-SIP.
This Toolkit uses lessons learned from CGAP’s extensive analysis of real-life country experiences. It helps financial regulators and supervisors to implement a structured approach for managing the complex interplay among the I-SIP objectives – the I-SIP Approach. The approach outlined in the toolkit has been used successfully in different policy-making environments and can be adapted to fit your needs.
