ID4D Diagnostic: Niger Country Report

The present Id-M system in Niger is fragmented and fails to take advantage of opportunities to facilitate citizens’ interaction with the public sector in instances where authentication or verification of identities is required. Civil registration and civil identification are managed out of different departments within the Ministry of Interior. No centralized database for civil registration nor for identification records exist hence at this point there are no interconnected or interoperable identity management systems in existence. The reasons for this fragmentation are a combination of outdated and incomplete legal frameworks, inefficient institutional arrangements and unmet information technology needs.
