The ID2020 Alliance is setting the course of digital ID
ID2020 is coordinating funding for identity and channeling those funds toward high-impact projects, enabling diverse stakeholders - UN agencies, NGOs, governments, and enterprises - to pursue a coordinated approach that creates a pathway for efficient and responsible implementation at scale.
Through its partners, ID2020 is driving multi-stakeholder collaboration to set the future course of digital ID. As an Alliance, we work to ensure that safety, security, interoperability, and individual control are built into digital ID systems by-design.
The Alliance leverages a market-based approach to ensure that good digital ID is available, ethical, and fit-for-purpose for all users.
We fund high-impact projects in order to answer critical questions and improve lives through digital identity while working to influence public policy and technical standards development.
Alliance Partners Include:
ID2020, a US-registered 501(c)(3) based in New York, NY, is the Secretariat for the ID2020 Alliance, a public-private partnership that is maximizing the potential of digital ID to improve lives.
The Secretariat is responsible for day-to-day operations. The Secretariat raises funds to support digital ID programs, conducts monitoring and evaluation on ongoing programs, coordinates with implementations partners, influences technical standards development, and supports the governance structure.
Closing the identity gap is an enormous challenge. It will take the work of many committed people and organizations coming together across different geographies, sectors and technologies. But it’s exciting to imagine a world where safe and secure digital identities are possible, providing everyone with an essential building block to every right and opportunity they deserve.Peggy Johnson Executive VP, Business Development,<br> Microsoft Corporation
