Huduma Bill 2019

Dear GG and Listers ,

Omidyar has published some informative articles on good digital ID
www.omidyar.com/sites/default/files/ON%20Unpacks%20Good%20ID_Final_3.7.19.pdf

Digital Impact Alliance(dial ) has also published some informative articles
on principles for digital development (Nine “living” guidelines designed to
help digital development practitioners integrate established best practices
into technology-enabled programs.) digitalprinciples.org/

There is a lot of information on best practices that can be used to come up
with a good digital ID system that will be both inclusive and enabling to
all as opposed to the current proposed huduma bill.

Regards,

Esther K.
