Hundreds of millions of people worldwide lack any proof of identity, barring them from receiving vital services such as healthcare, social benefits, financial services and voting rights. Developing countries frequently invest in identity systems that are disconnected and lack interoperability. The Identification for Development (ID4D) program seeks to help countries provide identity for everyone, including birth registration, by 2030, with a focus on the poor and disadvantaged. To move forward, the World Bank needs to establish a standardized integration approach for countries rolling out ID initiatives, reducing costs and duplication. It turned to Accenture because of our extensive experience with identity management programs for governments and organizations worldwide, delivering accurate, convenient and cost-effective solutions—the foundation of high performance public service for the future.
