Our Community

The Community of Practice includes a growing number of bilateral and multilateral donors, development finance institutions, implementing agencies and service providers and financial sector stakeholders.

Founded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP), and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), RFF is the first joint platform to support the efforts of – and provide a space for – participating institutions in the development community to:

  • Gather, share and disseminate insights and evidence on current practice and on-going initiatives related to responsible finance;
  • Foster potential collaboration to support or advance responsible finance;
  • Build on the responsible finance frameworks developed to date, facilitating a broad-based dialogue and consensus among stakeholders;
  • Support coordinated action in the longer term.

In a joint effort the Community of Practice has conducted several mapping efforts of responsible finance initiatives and practices, including the most recent report “Progress in Responsible Financial Inclusion”, which provides a deeper look at the implementation of responsible finance principles and highlights emerging trends and good practices.

By joining the Community of Practice all stakeholders can access, share and disseminate knowledge on Responsible Finance, find partners and experts and participate to the activities and events of a lively and committed Community.
