TAGS

(Newsletter May 2023)

The UN Legal Identity Agenda (UNLIA) Task Force started a series of webinars focusing on achieving legal identity for all. The first webinar was held on 19 April 2023 on the theme “‘What is UNLIA? – How to integrate CRVS and ID management?”. The webinar included presentations on the UN Legal Identity Agenda, coordination mechanisms in the UN, and on civil registration and national ID systems. It also included lessons learned from Mozambique, Azerbaijan and Honduras. The objectives of the webinar were to:

  • Ensure that the UNCTs are aware of the global framework on legal identity and build capacity to align its activities with the UNLIA;
  • Promote understanding among UNCTs on the importance of linking civil registration and identity management systems and enhance their capacity to advise to Member States;
  • Guide the UNCTs on how to ensure coordination among different UN departments and agencies by introducing good examples.
