Experiences from YouthSave and Beyond

In a global context in which adolescents and youth consistently capture policymakers’ attention as potentially politically and economically problematic, global advocates urge countries to view the life-stages of adolescence and youth—and large youth cohorts in the developing world—as an economic and social opportunity. Financial inclusion, and particularly access to savings, has been suggested as one tool that can support adolescents and youth in successfully navigating the transition to adulthood in the developing world. 
 
Join The New America Foundation as they convene a panel of experts to explore a range of questions related to the use of youth savings accounts as a poverty alleviation tool in the developing world: What is the connection between youth financial inclusion and poverty alleviation? What role, if any, can/will financial institutions play? How can regulatory environments better foster youth financial inclusion? 
 
This event will feature two recent publications from the YouthSave project, TheBusiness Case for Youth Savings: A Framework and Regulatory Environments for Youth Savings in the Developing World.
