Digital and Financial Inclusion

The PIC is committed to driving digital and financial inclusion by supporting evidence for an enabling policy environment, uptake
of literacy and skills as well as the adoption of appropriate digital tools and technology for vulnerable and excluded populations.
Despite a fairly good mobile penetration, the awareness and uptake of digital financial products and services in Nigeria are relatively low as determinants of adoption of financial products and services extend beyond a person’s functional and emotional needs. The PIC behavioural Innovation Lab (BIL) anchors the design of digital financial products on an evidence-based understanding of human-centred design and behavioural economics to explore consumer choices, behavioural problems and innovative solution testing.

Sustainable and Inclusive Digital Transformation Program

Sustainable and Inclusive Digital Transformation Program

The PIC is implementing an FCDO-funded project to address digital economy challenges and support the continued growth of an enabling regulatory condition for inclusive digital transformation in implementing states (Edo, Kaduna, Kano, Jigawa, Lagos). The project is advancing inclusive digital transformation for the most vulnerable and the implementation of the National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy 2020-2030, focusing on developmental regulations, digital services development and promotion, digital society, and emerging technologies, and indigenous content promotion and development at the national and state level.
