Quote about attendance and contribution to the EurAfrican Forum:

“With more than 40% of the people without IDs living in Africa, there’s no better time to discuss the impact of IDs on people and communities. Join my panel discussion at the EurAfrican Forum 2021 on ‘’The Digital ID revolution: shedding light on ‘’invisible people’’ and fighting the ‘’Identification Gap’’ to join the conversation and shape an agenda for identification for development globally.”
