Our Secretariat Team provides strategic and technical advice and guidance to Alliance members in their journey to transition from cash to digital payments.

This includes producing action-oriented research and fostering peer learning on responsible practices. Working closely with members, the Secretariat Team also advocates for the digitization of payments at national, regional and global levels.

We are hosted by the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), with offices in New York, Bogotà, Dakar, Dhaka, Kigali, London, Manila and New Delhi.

Our Secretariat also works with international technical experts and senior advisors on digital payments. These experts provide technical assistance in designing and implementing policies to support the responsible digitization of payments by governments, companies and international organizations.
