10 November 2021 - The financial and economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic highlight the urgency of ensuring that young people in South-East European countries are equipped with financial skills that allow them to cope with periods of economic uncertainty and increase their financial resilience. Young people in the region are less included in the formal financial system, have lower levels of financial literacy compared to older adults, and engage in less financially savvy behaviours.

This report provides an overview of South-East European countries’ efforts in developing and implementing financial education policies and programmes to address some of the above-mentioned challenges and to increase the financial literacy of children and young people. It identifies successful implementation practices as well as areas for further improvements.
