Admissions and Upcoming Trainings

8QM trainings offer institutional-level capacity building. With host institution(s), FLPFI designs and implements 8QM capacity-building programs to achieve the host’s key objectives. 8QM trainings can be organized around a specific country or issue area. Trainings can be designed to be fully online, in-person, or hybrid. Our goal is to help host institutions engage with stakeholders and coordinate evidence, vision, and strategy.

8QM Ethiopia – October 2022

In collaboration with UNCDF’s Policy Accelerator we will assist by training members of the Women’s Digital Financial Inclusion Advocacy Hub (WDFI) in Addis Ababa.

8QM Jordan – November 2022

FLPFI and JoPACC are thrilled to announce their partnership to offer an 8QM workshop to promote the design of a comprehensive policy around the digitalization of payments in Jordan. This training is the result of JoPACC’s reception of the FLPFI Alumni Research Prize Grant and will build on an ongoing research project on the digitalization of payments of the Jordanian government that started in March 2022. 

This 8QM training will support the work of JoPACC in their effort to promote financial inclusion through the digitalization of government payments. The training will provide the framework so that results from the ongoing research project are incorporated in the design of evidence-based robust public policies to be implemented in 2023.
