Digital Identity


The purpose of this brief is to provide background and summary on key debates around digital identification in development. It aims to describe some of the key terms and types of digital identity systems, their role in development and what the opportunities are as well as the key challenges, and pointers to ways identification systems can better contribute to development outcomes. This brief is intended for Sida policy and programme managers with limited or no existing knowledge of digital identity in development to serve as a foundational briefing on the subject and to signpost further information. As the field of digital identity is a rapidly evolving one this brief describes the field at the time of writing, and should not be read as a definitive statement of the field or of Sida’s position on the field.
