Identification as a centerpiece for development: What can other countries learn from Peru? 
Photo Creidt: Daniel SilvaIn the 1990’s Peru’s internal conflict left more than 3 million Peruvians without identification. Today, the country has achieved near universal ID coverage after years of making identification a national priority. Peru’s ability to drive the identification agenda has inspired other countries to achieve similar results.  Last month, the World Bank Group organized a learning visit to Peru for delegations from Cote d’Ivoire and Guinea,  as part of ID4D’s ongoing South-South Exchange Program to help countries share knowledge, best practices and lessons, and leverage experiences from countries that have successfully implemented identification systems.

Series of Knowledge Sharing Events in Uzbekistan
ID4D organized a series of knowledge sharing events in Uzbekistan, following a formal request from the government to learn from Moldova and the Kyrgyz Republic’s experience in implementing a national identification system. These sessions were attended by over 150 government officials from Uzbekistan, and focused on lessons learned from mobile ID implementation and the roll-out of Smart ID Cards. Participants benefited from this in-country learning opportunity, which is closely linked to the preparation of the new “Digital Uzbekistan” investment project.
