Citizens’ ability to officially identify themselves is a prerequisite to socio-economic development. The ability to prove that “you are who you say you are” when interacting with the state or private enterprise is critical to accessing basic services such as healthcare, education, employment, financial services and political institutions. Yet it is estimated that globally, almost 1.5 billion people are under-documented, with India and Sub-Saharan Africa alone accounting for around 900 million ‘unidentified’ persons.
