Citizen Identity

The Importance of Identity

The World Bank predicts there will be 11.2 billion people on the planet by 2100. Growth at this rate, combined with the social and economic challenges brought about by increased global travel, migration and security threats highlights the need for every person globally to have a legal and secure identity.

For citizens and governments it means:

  • Having the ability to prove existence and gain access to critical services
  • The freedom and mobility to move across national and international borders
  • A more secure society, underpinned by authentic data
  • The ability to effectively manage national resources
  • Providing for social development and inclusion in society


  • Freedom, entitlement, enablement, participation in society
  • Ability to prove their existence, access entitled rights and services, freedom and mobility


  • Grow society, protect citizens and borders, guarantee inclusion, social inclusion and fairness
  • Security of society, effective management of national resources, social development and inclusion, protect national reputation
