Digital Identity and the Future of Africa's Digital Economy
The event will be webcast live from this page.
The UN and World Bank envision that by 2030 every individual in the world will have a digital identity. Digital ID promises to transform Africa's economic and political landscape. It holds the power to unlock more inclusive digital economies, increase access to government services, and elevate political accountability. As African nations move forward with ID programs, however, it is imperative that they adopt standard laws and norms that ensure data protection and regional interoperability.
This event is made possible through support from the Omidyar Network.
