Digital:ID - Day 1: ID Ecosystems and Citizen e-Services
"Assuring Interopability and Harmonisation for Sovereign ID Programs"
Citizens around the world depend on government issued identities to prove who they are and gain access to vital services, including healthcare, social protection, education and finance. The ability to uniquely identify individuals and reliable authenticate identity is a key enabler for accelerating progress toward achieving the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
However many of today’s national ID systems are composed of scattered registries across different agencies that perform different functions and are not interoperable – making it impossible to exchange, consult or update data between systems and hindering the development of cohesive ID ecosystems.
But bringing these scattered registries together in a cost-effective and sustainable manner is a not inconsiderable task.
