How do the estimated 500 million smallholder households worldwide manage their money and what kind of financial services would better serve this important group?

Until now, very little was known about how financial services could effectively respond to the varied needs of smallholder families around the world. In CGAP's year-long financial diaries study, researchers tracked the financial lives of 270 total smallholder households in Mozambique, Pakistan and Tanzania and came away with unique insights into how these families manage their income, plan for expenses and cope with the unpredictable nature of lives rooted in agriculture.

It is the first time the financial diaries methodology has been used to research the financial lives of smallholders.

Join CGAP on February 25 for an event featuring a panel of experts who will highlight key findings from the Smallholder Diaries and discuss opportunities to design and improve financial solutions for smallholder households.

With the increased focus on health – and universal health coverage – as a core part of the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), being as efficient and effective as possible with health funding and interventions, is essential. However, work to prevent and treat TB and HIV, or work to improve child health, needs to be carried out in ways that do not compromise equity or quality of service delivery. Governments and partners will need to achieve better health results in a more efficient way. This session will pose the question: How do we get health services to the right people, in the right places, in the right way, and at the right time?

The World Bank’s Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA) convenes 47 governments and more than 260 civil society and private sector partners to solve governance challenges around the world.  Today, the GPSA seeks to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by helping citizens and governments to address what Amina Mohamed, the UN Secretary-General's Special Adviser on the SDGs, has called “the one knot we haven’t tied”: Accountability.
 
Participants will be encouraged to focus on the question “How can citizens help drive the accountable implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals?”  Participants are welcome to draw on examples from their own contexts.  Outcomes of the discussion will help shape GPSA’s scale-up strategy and its contribution to the SDGs.
