Country Diagnostic: Nigeria
Case Study published August 27, 2015
Development Results Focused Research Program, Country Diagnostic: Nigeria
This diagnostic measures the current state of the transition from cash to electronic payments by estimating volumes and values of payments made in Nigeria, as well as assessing the likelihood of further movement by looking at payment use cases associated with each key shift stage. In so doing, the diagnostic identifies specific examples of attempts to shift from cash to electronic payments that could generate lessons for Better Than Cash Alliance (“Alliance”) stakeholders in other contexts. It also identifies gaps in the available data. Filling these gaps could provide valuable insights for designing and monitoring additional efforts to shift. This country plan recommends one case study and two additional measurement activities be executed in Nigeria during the Development Results Focused Research Program (DRFRP) in 2013-2014.
