ID4Africa this week announced the launch of a petition to be presented to the United Nations to designate September 16 as “International Identity Day”. The goal is to raise awareness for UN sustainable development goal (SDG) 16.9, which sets a goal of legal identity for all people worldwide by 2030. The petition is intended to be presented to the UN when it has reached sufficient support to warrant a vote in the General Assembly.
