Inclusive ID systems are essential for protecting human rights, providing opportunities, and achieving sustainable development. A critical step towards inclusivity is to link a country’s national ID management system with its civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) system. However, this link doesn’t guarantee inclusivity in all situations. There are other issues and challenges that must be recognized and addressed. In particular, a country must ensure its CRVS system is universal, accurate, and reliable. It should also put the necessary resources, technologies, and legal frameworks in place to support the process of linking its ID register and CRVS system.
