The Inclusion for All initiative, an advocacy programme that seeks to remove the barriers that prevent the financial and economic inclusion of Nigeria’s poorest and most vulnerable communities, has released its most recent research findings through an open-source data visualisation platform.
The Inclusion for All platform allows interested stakeholders to navigate rich data-sets on inclusion that help the user understand the issues and challenges for themselves. The findings and platform were launched at a roundtable event on November 23, 2021.

Some of the key findings are summarised below, and a wider selection of insights can be found by visiting the Inclusion for all website.
