UNCDF organized this webinar to discuss how fast-tracking digital payments at a time of crisis can be crucial in delivering aid and in post-crisis recovery. Three speakers from the UNCDF Inclusive Digital Economies team, Ali Akram, Sabine Mensah and Jaspreet Singh, were invited to share their experience and expertise. The objective of the webinar was to deliver an idea of what one should consider when deciding to digitize payments in a time of crisis such as COVID-19. Some of the topics discussed included the necessary infrastructure for digital solutions to be leveraged efficiently, the implementation and onboarding processes, and the importance of working closely with regulators and private sector actors to ensure delivery and sustainability during the crisis, as well as beyond.
