The ID4Africa Annual General Meeting (AGM) stands as a one-of-a-kind event where the African identity and global ID4D community gather in person under one roof to jointly explore how digital identity and aligned services can advance socio-economic development in Africa.

The 2024 edition of this premier conference and expo is expected to attract over 2,000 attendees from 90+ countries, including representatives from 50+ African countries. It is built on a dynamic program, shaped by an ever-evolving annual theme, reflecting Africa’s identity priorities and the global ID4D agenda. What sets this program apart is its unique development process which spans over 10 months and is driven by crowd-sourced insights from highly credible authorities and practitioners in identity matters, which makes it very responsive to the African Continent needs at a granular level. The program is meticulously curated by the renowned authority on ID4D, our Executive Chairman–Dr. Joseph Atick, and is informed by extensive research, and dialogues with thought leaders and key players within the identity community.

The 2024 AGM Program is designed to deliver the following outcomes:


Share policies, best practices, and global standards for developing successful identification programs including civil registration, legal and digital identity.


Identify pathways for harmonization of practices and data across sectors, countries, and regions.


Highlight the various approaches for digital transformation including the emerging Digital Public Infrastructure anchored on digital identity.


Promote inclusive dialogue among stakeholders (government, civil society, development actors, and private sector) to address risks associated with digital identity systems and implement effective mitigation strategies.


Identify key success factors with emphasis on trust and inclusion (especially gender), user experience and lessons learned from responsible digital identity implementations including data protection and privacy.


Examine successful policies and the enabling legal and regulatory environment that have been proven to accelerate adoption and provide guardrails for safe implementations.



Explore strategies for maximizing impact of digital assets through enabling use cases that promote engagement with the population and empower individuals.



Examine innovations, both technological and in business processes, that hold the potential to be game changers for digital transformation and the adoption of digital identity across the Continent.


Cultivate dialogue and collaborations throughout the Conference Program and more specifically throughout the full day workshops.



Offer hands-on exposure to cutting-edge solutions through an exceptional world class exposition.


With these objectives driving our efforts across 4 core components — the Conference, Exposition, Workshops, and LiveCasts — the AGM serves as a vital platform for Africa to maintain a comprehensive and sustainable voice on identity issues. It achieves this by facilitating the transfer of knowledge that can be trusted and used, by fostering creative solution-building processes, promoting collaboration, and enabling networking opportunities centered around the ID4D agenda.

Since its inception in Tanzania in 2015, the ID4Africa AGM has consistently attracted significant and growing participation from government decision-makers, international development organizations, humanitarian agencies, civil society, NGOs, and solution providers. Without question, it stands as the foremost gathering for individuals and organizations involved in identity development, not only within Africa but also on a global scale.
