This catalog of technical standards can serve as a source of reference for the stakeholders in the identification systems ecosystem. Robust and inclusive identification systems are crucial for development, as enshrined in sustainable development goal (SDG) target 16.9, which mandates countries to provide legal identity for all, including birth registration. For governments, modern identification systems allow for more efficient and transparent administration and service delivery, a reduction in fraud, and leakage related to transfers and benefits payments, increased security, accurate vital statistics for planning purposes, and greater capacity to respond to disasters and epidemics.
