UN Secretary-General António Guterres will join Achim Steiner, UNDP Administrator and Maria Ramos, until recently CEO of ABSA Group, as Co-Chairs of his Task Force on Digital Financing of the Sustainable Development Goals, to launch a new report People’s Money: Harnessing Digitalization to Finance a Sustainable Future.The unprecedented social and economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has put a spotlight on the role of digital finance in providing relief for millions around the world, supporting businesses and protecting jobs and livelihoods.The report, “People’s Money: Harnessing Digitalization to Finance a Sustainable Future”, highlights how billions of people around the world are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic using digital tools to work, spend and socialize. It argues there is an historic opportunity to harness digitalization in placing citizens, the ultimate owners of the world's financial resources, in control of finance to ensure that it meets their needs, today and in the future.
