A report looking at developments in ID systems around the world in 2020

This report by the World Bank’s Identification for Development (ID4D) initiative outlines how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted on the implementation of ID systems globally, as well as explaining the role digital ID will play in recovery from the crisis, such as helping deliver public services for the vaccine rollout.

“Countries such as Estonia and Singapore that had trusted digital ID systems in place to facilitate remote authentication were best placed to handle this transition and consequently demonstrated stronger resilience.”

The report includes in-depth articles, including a study on how women are excluded from registering for a National ID in Nigeria, and summarizes how ID4D has engaged with various governments and civil society in the past year.

Guided by the Principles on Identification for Sustainable Development, ID4D will ensure that digital ID and civil registration systems contribute to the accelerated achievement of development outcomes across sectors while being well adapted to local needs and constraints, and help countries proactively mitigate risk
