We believe 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.
In light of its importance, ID4Africa will be dedicating an upcoming LiveCast episode to examine, from all angles, the issues impacting inclusion. We are calling on experts, who have informed views on this subject to join an engaging panel moderated by the ID4Africa Executive Chairman, Dr. Joseph Atick.
In this live online session you will be given the opportunity to briefly present some prepared remarks, then engage in a discussion. The panel will include government, industry and development agencies.
To provide concrete guidance to governments about policies, approaches and technologies that have been proven successful in boosting enrollments or that are promising game-changers in that regard.
This LiveCast will be held as part of ID4Africa’s commemoration of International Identity Day.
Date: September 16, 2020
Time: 14h30 – 16h00 CET/ Paris time
Location: Online – Zoom
