23-25 May 2023 | Kenya, Nairobi
7 & 21 June 2023 | Virtual, LiveCast


In 2022, ID4Africa broke all records by introducing a bold and innovative form of conferencing for the 6th edition of our General Meeting. We brought together our two most powerful tools of engagement – the physical General Meeting and virtual LiveCasts - to create an unprecedented Augmented General Meeting (AGM) held physically in Marrakesh, Morocco.

Following a successful debut, we are excited to renew the experience at our 2023 AGM. This event spans 5 days with a physical meeting held over 3 days in Kenya, Nairobi, May 23-25, followed by 2 dedicated summation and wrap-up LiveCasts on June 7 & 21.

The objective of the AGM is to give the Continent a sustainable voice on identity matters, while providing mechanisms for information dissemination and for networking and collaborations. Consisting of three main components - the Conference, Exposition and LiveCasts- the AGM is where African governments meet physically to jointly explore how digital identity and aligned services can advance socio-economic development in their countries, and the international community is able to participate to advance discussions.

While our LiveCasts virtually gather the extended international community, the Conference and Exposition reunite, under one roof, three key stakeholder groups in the ID4Africa identity community:

  • Leading identity stakeholders from African governments
  • International development agencies & humanitarian agencies
  • The private sector

Who should attend?

Each stakeholder group may have a different motivation for attending but one thing is clear, ID4Africa 2023 is designed to ensure that everyone derives value from attending both physically and virtually.
