Future proofed: how government can create next-generation disbursement schemes
Government disbursement programmes are an essential part of the toolkit of policymakers, providing support and incentives to billions of people and businesses annually, with estimates putting the total spending by governments on social safety nets at around 1.5% of the entire global economy.

The importance of support schemes was proven by the coronavirus pandemic. The response to COVID-19 prompted governments around the world to roll out support for both citizens and businesses.

These schemes were often developed at pace using modern technology, and pointed to a transformed digital future for all government disbursements.

However, new research by Visa and Kearney has warned that lessons from these COVID schemes risk being lost as governments return to normality and revert to their former methods of payments. The report has called on governments to build on the lessons from the pandemic to create modern payment systems that are better targeted, more efficient, scalable, resilient, and citizen-centric.

This webinar, in partnership with Visa, will share unique insight on how governments can build these systems.

Join the webinar to find out:
• The key digital building blocks governments will need to put in place to create modern, efficient and responsive disbursement programmes – and how to do so.
• Lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic on how to put in place new disbursement programmes at speed – and what citizens need to be able to access them.
• How governments can ensure awareness of digital payout schemes, and boost financial literacy to maximise their impact.
