AYANWORKS team at the ID4Africa 2024 AGM:

Our team had the privilege of attending the ID4Africa 2024 Annual General Meeting (AGM), held under the theme "Digital Identity as DPI: Fostering Trust, Inclusion & Adoption." Engaging in productive discussions with industry leaders, our team highlighted our advanced digital identity and verifiable credentials solutions. This year’s event saw over 2,000 delegates from Africa and around the world, addressing critical issues such as Digital Identity as Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI), digital verifiable credential management, identity governance, the role of civil society, and cybersecurity for identity professionals. One of the key aspects of the event was how to make an inclusive solution for Citizens, Migrants, Residents, and Refugees, where Identity can help traceability and benefits distribution seamless and transparent. Timely registration of Birth certificates was another key topic. How countries can build successful DPIs. The essence is that not one solution fits for all. Countries need to be flexible and choose the right solutions. Some of the countries shared their experiences with using the best and creating their own model. This was great to hear as this gives space for innovation. Next year this event is going to be organized in Ehthiopia.
