Without a legal identity, it’s difficult to access social protection services and nearly impossible to participate in modern life. Millions of people are left on the margins of society because they lack legal identity. Countries with fragile economic and political climates have the weakest institutions and the fewest resources to break the cycle of invisibility and exclusion.

Two upcoming webinars will provide guidance on the link between civil registration, identity verification, and social programs. Their aim is to inform politicians, policymakers, organizations, and development professionals who are working to improve the delivery of social protection services.

The webinars are co-organized by the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data and the Centre of Excellence for CRVS Systems. Housed at IDRC, the Centre of Excellence is a global resource hub that actively supports national efforts to develop, strengthen, and scale up CRVS systems.
