Throughout the year, ID4Africa organizes several events which support the Identity Movement and its mission. Chief among them are the ID4Africa LiveCasts and Annual General Meeting (AGM).
The ID4Africa LiveCasts are episodes of knowledge exchange and dialogue that integrate various voices from the Identity Community in an ultimate live experience. These are not simply webinars where speakers present and audiences listen, they are the next generation in conferencing.

The Annual General Meeting
The AGM is the premier platform for peer learning and sharing of best practices and experiences among African and other nations. It occurs in May each year and represents the Movement’s most extensive channel of impact – physically uniting over 1800 key stakeholders from the entire identity ecosystem.
ID4Africa Ambassadors Summit (IAS)
The IAS is an ID4Africa meeting held the day before the AGM. It allows the ID4Africa Ambassadors to give direct feedback to the Movement, and to influence its direction by making it aware of the latest issues of high priority in their respective countries. The IAS is presided by the ID4Africa Executive Chairman.
Data Protection in Identity Systems (DPIS)
DPIS made its inaugural appearance at the 2019 AGM in Johannesburg where it open only to Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) and invited international agency representatives who were active in this domain. The primary objective behind DPIS was to foster a Pan-African discourse within the data protection community, enabling these authorities to network and coordinate their positions on general matters related to privacy and data protection in general, and not just as they relate to identity systems. Since May 2023 a the AGM in Nairobi, this adjunct gathering has evolved into a recurring workshop held on final day of the AGM.
