The SEEP Annual Conference gathers leading global thinkers and doers, at the forefront of economic inclusion and social empowerment efforts across the world. In response to the rapidly evolving global crisis and with our steadfast commitment to creating a meaningful and safe experience for our community, we know that the in-person 3-day conference model of years past will not be possible this year. The COVID-19 pandemic and the social and economic upheaval it has caused, has resulted in deep uncertainty and has accelerated SEEP's own journey of becoming a more agile network and team. The 2020 conference theme, Disruptive Collaboration: navigating a radically uncertain world, embodies this discomfort.
The conference will be powered by four technical streams:
- Stream 1: The Nexus Imperative for Market-Based Programming
- Stream 2: Financial Inclusion: COVID-19 & Risks to Four Decades of Progress
- Stream 3: Savings Groups in the Age of COVID-19
- Stream 4: The Promise and Perils of Inclusion in a New World
