Capacity Building course: Digital identity for the underserved and the role of mobile

Official proof of identity is fundamental to an individual’s ability to exercise their rights and secure access to a wide range of vital services such as healthcare, education, mobile connectivity, social security programmes and financial services. Yet globally one billion people, many of them women and forcibly displaced people, are still unable to prove their identity. “I found this workshop very important. Especially to national ID staff.” This free one-day course highlights the role of mobile in digital identification systems and how digital identity can empower people to become digital citizens who can fully participate in today’s digital economy. It highlights the impact certain government policies can have on the ability of marginalised groups to access official proof of identity as well as identity-linked services. The course focuses on identity-related policy areas, such as government incentives for birth registration and national ID application process, and features case studies and examples on how government policies can either support or hinder marginalised populations from accessing identity. “If it [the course] can reach out to as many people as possible around world, it will be very, very good.” The course is available face-to-face or online. For more information contact the GSMA Digital Identity team or the GSMA Capacity Building team.
