Our members – and the inclusive finance sector in general – increasingly focus on the realization of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). To support our members in their efforts to contribute to the SDGs, we focus on the following themes: Geodata for Inclusive Finance and Food (G4IFF), Finance for Refugees (F4R), Green Inclusive Finance (GIF), and Rural Finance (RF).
Per theme, a group of members – and, where needed, other stakeholders – partnered up to jointly work on the specific topics and their corresponding goals. We believe that this thematic approach allows us to support our members’ efforts in an efficient and optimal manner.
NpM promotes innovative and effective partnerships to collaborate, gain/share expertise, and share resources to achieve mutual inclusive finance goals in general and increase the contribution to the SDGs in specific.
