Led by the National ID Program and supported by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) and Ministry of Innovation and Technology (MInT), NID is a five-year program (2021 – 2026) set to introduce a new nation-wide foundational digital ID that will gradually serve all Identity use-cases in the nation — to offer an inclusive, residence-based and digital identification system, and ultimately support Ethiopia’s digital transformation agenda. The NID initiative will be implemented in various phases, including an initial pilot period, to enable lessons learned and technical iterations prior to a scale-up and nation-wide roll-out throughout Ethiopia. The pilot phase will be complete in the first quarter of 2022, after which transition to the main country roll-out will take place. Technology-wise, an Ethiopian custom-version of the Modular Open-Source Identification Platform (MOSIP) will be used as the ID Management System.
