Principles on Identification for Sustainable Development

In 2017, a group of development partners, international organizations, government agencies, and NGOs actively working to design and support identification (ID) systems came together organically to develop a set of shared principles essential for maximizing the benefits of identification for development while mitigating the risks. These Principles on Identification for Sustainable Development have now been endorsed by 25 organizations, and have served as a “north star” for global advocacy and country work in support of ID systems that fulfill the promise of inclusive, sustainable development.
