Evidence in Financial Inclusion III: New Findings and their Applications
On July 20th in Mumbai, IPA, <a href="http://ifmrlead.org/">IFMR LEAD</a>, and <a href="http://www.cafral.org.in/">CAFRAL</a> (with support from the Citi Foundation) co-hosted a workshop for 50 high- and mid-level policymakers and financial service providers interested in learning how rigorous evidence can help them better serve their customers. During the one-day event, attendees engaged in a series of discussions that encouraged them to think about how recent financial inclusion evidence applies to their institutions and how RCTs can be useful for decision-making. The event showcased evidence produced by evaluations funded by the Citi IPA Financial Capability Research Fund and included presentations by Shawn Cole, professor at Harvard Business School; G. Gopalakrishna, Director of CAFRAL; and Mr. U. S. Paliwal, Executive Director at the Reserve Bank of India. The agenda and PowerPoint presentations from the event are available below. This workshop is the third in a series of three; the other two workshops were held in <a href="/event/evidence-financial-inclusion-i-new-findings-and-their-applications">Bogota</a> and <a href="/event/evidence-financial-inclusion-ii-new-findings-and-their-applications">Manila</a>.
