The answers to all these and more may be found here in the recording of MOSIP’s ‘Stories from the field- Spotlight on Guinea’ webinar on 19 November, a milestone marker for several reasons.
The story telling session featuring the technical team from WURI Guinea who developed the solution with the guidance of the engineering team at MOSIP -- Hadja Cheriff - Sr. Business Analyst, Ibrahima Mouctar Diallo - Technical Lead and Ferdinand Goumou - Network and Security Engineer, was seamlessly moderated by Robert Karanja, Director, Responsible Technology & Africa Lead, Omidyar Network.

The West Africa Unique Identification for Regional Integration and Inclusion (WURI) project aims to help build fIDs for the entire population in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) region regardless of nationality, citizenship, or legal status. Through grant of the resultant government-recognized proof of identity, citizens can access a suite of government services including safety nets, social registries, health and pension programs, financial and digital inclusion, women, and girls’ empowerment, and labor mobility. The project comprises three components to accomplish its mission – Strengthening the Legal and Institutional Framework, Establishing Robust and Inclusive fID systems, and Facilitating Access to Service through fIDs.
The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) was established on 28 May 1975 through the Lagos treaty. ECOWAS envisages creating a borderless region that enables its population access and advantage of resources through opportunities in a sustainable environment. ECOWAS comprises 15 members who are mandated to promote economic integration in all fields of activity in the constituent countries. It aims to foster collective sufficiency and create a single large trading bloc through economic cooperation.
