 How Can We Use Digital IDs for Better Development?

Washington, DC - October 27 - RSVP Now
There are about 1.5 billion people living without any form of recognized identification - individuals who may not receive crucial services or benefits, or be actively discriminated against, because of this omission. 

It's a pressing issue now with over one million Syrian refugees seeking refuge with little, if any documentation, and a long-term SDG goal to provide legal identity for all, including birth registration by 2030.
This growing need for digital identity presents its own unique sets of interesting questions around ethics, policies, and the potential furthering of the digital divide. What role can development actors play in solving this problem with government counterparts to mitigate risk and maximize the benefits?
Fortunately there are many examples to draw from where countries are leading the way and generating not only excellent use cases but  excellent questions as well. Please RSVP now explore big and bold thinking about how we can make these billions of ‘invisible’ people visible at the next Technology Salon DC with these key thought leaders: We’ll have hot coffee and catered breakfast treats for a morning rush, but seating is limited, so please RSVP now. Once we reach our 35-person capacity there will be a waiting list!

About the Technology Salon

The Technology Salon™ is an intimate, informal, and in person, discussion between information and communication technology experts and international development professionals, with a focus on both:
  • Technology's impact on donor-sponsored technical assistance delivery, and
  • Private enterprise driven economic development, facilitated by technology.
Our meetings are lively conversations, not boring presentations. Attendance is capped at 35 people - and frank participation with ideas, opinions, and predictions is actively encouraged. 

It's also a great opportunity to meet others motivated to employ technology to solve vexing development problems. Join us today!
