Financial inclusion and youth development practitioners are constantly challenged to scale the lessons from their work through policy change. This often involves an interplay between local, regional and national government, and is not necessarily straightforward or unidirectional. This session will explore how youth financial inclusion/education initiatives in Vietnam, India, and the US used project results to effect policy change at various levels of government. The session is designed to provide practitioners with a better understanding of how to translate project learnings into effective advocacy through an understanding of the often complex, opportunistic, and multilayered nature of the policy change process.
