Digital payments, particularly when accompanied by digital financial Infrastructure and enabling regulations, help governments quickly and securely make cash transfers and other socio-economic benefits in the form of financial support.
This policy framework aims to provide policy guidance to regulators within the AFI network and beyond, in developing relevant policy/regulatory responses to mitigate the effects of global pandemics by leveraging on DFS. Although this guidance is immediately relevant to the current COVID-19 outbreak, it is also applicable for other emergencies, including natural and manmade disasters such as cyclone, earthquake, conflicts, forced displacements, etc.
AFI’s DFS workstream is supported by AFI’s funding partners.
