A changing world
A changing world poses some serious challenges to the provision of secure identity – the global population is set to grow to over 11 billion by the year 2100, according to the world bank. The levels of trade and personal wealth are growing and migration, crime and illicit trade are on the increase.
Already today 1 in 5 children under the age of 5 is un-registered and 1.5bn people in the developing world have no proof of identity at all.
A Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) programme enable the capture key, accurate data which forms the core of a true and stable identity – essential in our rapidly changing world.
But CRVS registry benefits the whole, as well as individuals – a country’s overall population is better served if every citizen’s rights are recorded, registered, validated and recognised. Governments who understand their population’s make up are better-placed to allocate the right resources and services.
