Briefing paper to the UN High Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment Working Group on Financial, Digital Inclusion and Property

Over the past year CARE has been advising the United Nations High Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment on what actions need to be taken to rapidly accelerate women’s economic empowerment outcomes and ensure we meet the SDG targets and leave no one behind.

This two-page policy briefing was submitted by CARE to the United Nations High Level Panel on Women's Economic Empowerment Working Group on Financial, Digital Inclusion and Property, which includes our key recommendation for scaling up Village Savings and Loan Associations as an effective, transformative and proven approach to advancing the financial inclusion of poor women.
