UNCDF Launches Impact Pathways: A Tool to Measure the Intricate Role of Digital Finance in Reaching the Sustainable Development Goals

The unique feature of the tool allows users to retrace the the links between financial instruments, their case-specific use and the reported benefits to better understand their positive impact on the implementation of the SDGs over time.


Originally developed as part of the Pacific Financial Inclusion Programme for the benefit of development practitioners, financial institutions and donors, “Impact Pathways” is a tool designed to clarify the link between daily life improvements of low-income populations through their access to financial services. As such, the tool is meant to uncover the “pathways” of specific financial services and their positive contributions to users and one or more SDGs over time.
