Identification is a key enabler for achieving development targets because universal registration gives individuals the documentation they need to secure their legal identity and their ensuing rights.
Identity documents can be forgotten, lost, destroyed or stolen during a refugee’s journey, and those who are fleeing persecution based on some aspect of their identity (e.g. nationality, religion, ethnic group or political affiliation) might make a decision not to travel with documentation.
In times of war, it is often impossible to replace lost identity documents. Those who fear political persecution are unable to approach government authorities, and citizens who live abroad may have difficulty sourcing original documents
