NFA organized and facilitated the session on “Ensuring inclusive digital IDs in the Asia Pacific” on June 6, 2023 at Rights Con 2023, at Costa Rica. The discussion was aimed at sharing the role played by technology in the humanitarian space today, and specifically to understand its impact on the statelessness. Asia Pacific, which hosts the largest number of the stateless population, is an important region due to its continuing deterioration of the involvement of CSOs in the development of Digital ID systems. NFA invited CSO’s from 3 different jurisdictions, Pakistan, Nepal, and Malaysia, to discuss various strategies that stakeholders have used to to engage with governments and private bodies to protect privacy, bring further transparency and accountability in design and implementation of Digital ID systems. The discussion was centered around implementation of human rights based design standards by sharing risks, challenges, and best practices faced by CSO’s in their respective jurisdictions.
