There and back again: Harnessing data, developing collaborative platforms and enabling governments to deliver on the SDGs

Making Access Possible (MAP) is a multi-country initiative to support nancial inclusion through a process of evidence-based analysis feeding into a nancial inclusion roadmap jointly implemented by a range of local stakeholders.

MAP was initiated by the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and is implemented in partnership with FinMark Trust and the Centre for Financial Regulation and Inclusion (Cenfri). In each country, MAP brings together a broad range of stakeholders from within government, the private sector and the donor community to create a set of practical actions aimed at extending nancial inclusion tailored to that country.

The volumes in the MAP Global Insights series consolidate and synthesise the learnings from the MAP programme across the 18 MAP countries.

NOTE 4: There and back again: Harnessing data, developing collaborative platforms and enabling governments to deliver on the SDGs. This concluding note pulls together the power of the consumer data, its role in driving improvement interventions at country level and the importance of the MAP platform in bringing together country governments and stakeholders in evidence-based decision-making. Picking up on the key ndings from the consumer data in other notes in the current volume, this note also provides insight into the systematic operational approach of the global MAP programme and reiterates the e cacy of the MAP approach in working with governments to deliver on the SDGs.
