According to World Bank Findex, 39% of Government to Person (G2P) payments, across the world in 2017, were made to beneficiaries through digital means. This indicates a continuous push from various programs towards digitizing social payments. As countries, institutions and programs digitize their operations to increase efficiency and promote financial inclusion, the need to assess the bottlenecks to digitization and chart out a path to seamless payments assume increased importance. In addition, an effective approach to digitizing government payments for social benefits increases the chances of a distribution model becoming successful and efficient. This video highlights the opportunities and impacts we have seen from digital readiness assessments in different social benefit initiatives across Africa and Asia.
