About the project

Launched in 2017, the OECD-Russia Technical Assistance Project on Financial Education in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS)/Eurasia provides tailored guidance and technical support for the design, implementation and review of evidence-based financial education strategies and policies in six CIS/Eurasian economies: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan.

This project draws on OECD/INFE expertise and good practices to support the design, implementation and evaluation of effective financial education strategies and policies as a key prerequisite for financial consumer protection and inclusion.

The first phase of the project focused on four work streams:

  • Advanced data collection and analysis of financial literacy levels and gaps

  • Developing, implementing and reviewing effective national strategies for financial education

  • Addressing the financial literacy needs of young people both inside and outside the school system

  • Identifying and meeting the financial literacy needs of migrants and their families

Building on internationally recognised expertise and longstanding commitment to advancing financial literacy around the world, the OECD/INFE is leading the project. The project has also benefited from the expertise of the G20/OECD Task Force of Financial Consumer Protection. This work is carried out with financial support from the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation and benefits from its technical expertise and participation in project activities.

A second phase of the project will be announced during the high-level event on 9-10 December 2019.
