Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Solutions

The fundamentals of identity

Identity – it is easily taken for granted, but it is one of the most important rights in the modern world. That’s because it defines who we are, enabling us to legally exist and participate in society.

Identity provides access to fundamental services such as healthcare, education and welfare, and enables citizen entitlement to ID cards and Passports.

But identity also empowers governments – it allows them to nurture, protect and understand their citizens. And that leads to the effective allocation of resources and provision of services on a national scale.

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 enables the capture of 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.
