To make the most of this toolkit, it’s important to understand how it fits into the context in which you work, to find the tools that would be most valuable for your organization.
The toolkit provides resources and activities to engage with other civil society organizations, governments, community organizations, and the general public to ensure good participation and accountability when implementing digital ID systems.
Its main objectives are to guide your organization to initiate strategic relationships, strengthen collaboration, and streamline the process of public participation.
These tools were designed by CSOs to support other CSOs to:
between your organization and government entities who have a significant role to play in the digital ID system.
between your organization, the general public, governmental entities, or other key actors in the system.
the process of public participation, making it accessible and engaging for both the general public and government actors.
From country to country, digital identification systems, implementations, operations, will all differ dramatically. CSOs, the relationships that CSOs and governments, and how those CSOs work with the public will differ as well. The typologies presented in this document are simply tools for previewing and preparing to engage in each country.
