Event: Spotlight on Inclusion

Date: September 16, 2020

Time: 14:30 – 16:30 CET


ID4Africa believes the greatest challenge for identity in Africa right now is achieving inclusion – getting everyone enrolled and onboarded into an identity system, so that they are visible and can receive their fair share of benefits and services. This goal has become even more urgent in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic as the public health challenges and economic woes are pressuring governments to deploy social safety nets, health, and labor programs to contain the pandemic and help restart their economies—all requiring inclusive identification of the population.

The objective of this LiveCast is to provide concrete guidance to governments about policies, approaches and technologies that have been proven successful in boosting enrollments or are promising game-changers in that regard.

To celebrate International Identity Day, this episode of the LiveCast will be an extended session of 2 hours to allow panelists to dive deeper into the subject and to give attendees the opportunity to voice their opinions, through the Community Voices feature, on the number one challenge for identity systems today.
