The Swiss Blockchain Platform Will Provide Digital ID for Myanmar’s Refugees
The Swiss digital identity platform Procivis is working with a non-governmental organization (NGO) to provide digital ID cards for the 3.5 million Rohingya people from Myanmar. The system aims to make Rohingya refugees acquire basic human rights and help them to integrate into other countries after they have been forced to flee their homes.
The Rohingya NGO project said that the ordinance of the Myanmar government in 1982caused the Rohingya people to get into trouble. Also, ethnic minorities could not hold citizenship or official state documents. The organization added that Rohingya refugees are often unable to obtain government services and integrate into the community due to lack of formal identity documents.
The Procivis eID platform of blockchain has developed a five-step verification process that will allow Rohingya to create digital ID cards.
According to World Bank statistics, there are about 1.1 billion people around the world cannot prove their identity. The main purpose of ID4D (Identification for Development) is to help realize the goal of sustainable development of the United Nations. Another way is to provide legal ID cards to everyone in the world by 2030.
