Identification for Development (ID4D) and Digitalizing G2P Payments (G2Px) 2021 Annual Report (英语)

The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has accelerated digitalization in ways that were unimaginable just two years ago, highlighting the fundamental role that digital identification (ID) and government-to-person (G2P) payment ecosystems can play in helping a country to deliver services and social assistance to its people rapidly, effectively, and responsibly. Crucial to this agenda, the World Bank Group’s sister initiatives identification for development (ID4D) and digitalizing G2P payments (G2Px) enjoyed another successful year in 2021, marking the fifth anniversary of the ID4D’s multi-donor trust fund (MDTF) partnership platform which now includes G2Px. Throughout the achievements covered in this annual report, one will see how both initiatives have grown across all three pillars of work: thought leadership and analytics, global platforms and convening, as well as country and regional action, adapting to rapidly changing landscapes. In 2021, demand increased significantly as countries sought to use ID systems and digitized G2P payments to respond to and recover from the pandemic. ID4D helped 49 countries on the design and implementation of inclusive and trusted ID and civil registration systems. Some important actions that countries can take, with ID4D and G2Px support, include establishing strong leadership and ownership, conceiving ID and G2P payment systems as part of digital public infrastructures, and applying people-centered design to reduce exclusion and improve user experience. More recommendations are available in the annual report’s feature story.
