Study of Options for Mutual Recognition of National IDs in the East African Community (Inglês)

This report summarizes key findings of research that was carried out between April and December 2017 through a participatory process that involved a wide variety of stakeholders. The EAC Partner States, EAC Secretariat, development partners, donors, and technical experts, were consulted extensively in the research. The methodology involved desk reviews, surveys, formal and informal consultations with Partner States and other stakeholders, and follow up technical missions by the World Bank Group team. Desk reviews provided background information on the status and coverage of ID systems in EAC Partner States, and case studies from other relevant regional ID initiatives (e.g. eIDAS, X-Road between Estonia and Finland, ECOWAS). The World Bank Group also developed a survey to understand the coverage, quality, and technical specifications of national ID systems in the EAC Partner States. Workshops were co-organized with the EAC Secretariat in July and December 2017 to engage with representatives of EAC Partner States, including national ID agencies, immigration bureaus, ministries of EAC affairs, ministries of home affairs, ministries of ICT and ministries of finance. The IOM, UNHCR, UNICEF, CGAP, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the European Commission also participated in these workshops.
