Evaluation of National Strategies for Financial Literacy
Date of publication
21/02/22 - Evaluation and monitoring are essential elements of assessing the effectiveness of public policies, benchmarking against desired outcomes, and helping to enact evidence-based actions to improve these policies. National strategies for financial literacy are complex, multi-year, multi-stakeholder public policy projects that can strongly benefit from comprehensive evaluation designs.
This report summarises and draws lessons from the evaluation approaches and activities of 29 countries and economies that are part of the OECD International Network for Financial Education. It provides implementation guidance on the evaluation of their national strategies for financial literacy. It also discusses reasons for evaluating national strategies, good practice approaches and methodologies, associated challenges and benefits, as well as funding the cost of evaluation.
