CRVS & LEGAL IDENTITY AT ID4AFRICA 2017
This year at ID4Africa InFocus (InF) 6 Session includes an impressive group of experts. ID4Africa is dedicated to promoting diverse voices and is pleased to be able to offer a lineup exclusively of women.
InF6 focuses on how individuals can be empowered to assert their legal identity within national identity frameworks, an issue at the forefront of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16.9. As SDG 16.9 places birth registration at the forefront of efforts to establish legal identity, this session places emphasis on the policy, institutional, and legal frameworks for reforming CRVS.
