As the role of identity in the daily lives of people continues to grow in significance, an inevitable policy question arises on a global scale: Shouldn’t identity be considered as a public good? This is not just a philosophical question; it has policy and developmental implications. It could be at the heart of a national strategy where identity is commoditized to stimulate innovation and down stream economic growth.

This livecast is the first of two episodes. ID4Africa will focus on digital public goods as tools to arrive at the development of digital identity. Click here to register for free.

The second part will be scheduled for January 14th, 2021 and will focus on methods of standardization and interoperability as a pathway to creating the public goods (similar to OpenFinance and OpenBanking).
