We cover what financial inclusion is and why it matters, how digital technology can both help and hinder financial inclusion, people's attitudes towards going cashless and whether a new divide could occur between traditional and new digital payments.

Each episode of season 1 of Navigating Digital Payments is based on a chapter from the 2021 report published by the Worldline Discovery Hub.
