Identity and sustainable development – next steps

Churchill Room
Wednesday 27 June

The United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16.9 requires that everyone on the plant must have a legal identity with birth registration by 2030. With over a billion people still to be covered, not only are the numbers a challenge, but also the very nature of the identity solutions and credentials.

What are the innovations that are urgently required? How is the industry shaping up to address these?

The session will present not only on-going case studies, but also important policy shifts that are likely to impact the industry and the technologies that it offers.

•    Legal identity for all with birth registration by 2030 sets a challenge for the ID industry,
•    What are the policy shifts that shape the technologies and solutions?
•    What has been achieved and what still needs to be done?
