Connecting the world

"By gradually moving toward the use of standard requirements and by deploying technologies that connect to each other, developing nations can reap the benefits of universal ID, said a new report from the World Bank and Accenture. Currently, over 1.8 billion adults in developing countries still lack an official ID and thus access to essential services."

"The report titled; Identification for Development (ID4D) Integration Approach identifies a comprehensive strategy and implementation roadmap for developing nations seeking to build, or expand citizen identity programs, regardless of their countrys level of technology infrastructure. The study is being released for input from policymakers, industry practitioners and civil society at the annual e-ID conference..."

"Providing legal identity for all people by 2030 is a target shared by the international community as part of the Sustainable Development Goals (target 16.9). The World Bank launched the Identification for Development (ID4D) program to help client countries achieve this goal, with the vision of making every person count by ensuring for each a unique legal identity while supporting government delivery of digital Identity-based services."

Well, if you want to rule the world you need to know where everybody is and what they`re doing.
