Challenge 2015: Legal Identity for Latin America and the Caribbean

The call for civil society organizations will be open until July 27, 2015

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) launched the call 2015 "Civil Society and Legal Identity" to find innovative solutions that contribute to support efforts to reduce the number of people without registration or identity in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The call is addressed to civil society organizations in member countries of the IDB. This initiative, led by the Vice President for Countries (VPC) through the "Civil Society for Innovative Solutions" program, and supported by the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), a member of the IDB Group, and the NEXSO platform, seeks finding innovative solutions with regards to the problem of legal identity in the region.

The proposed solutions should promote the process of legal registration of persons through activities or sectors such as sports, technology, health, creative industry and educational processes. A committee of experts will evaluate the proposals, taking into account the level of innovation, scope and implementation of solutions.

The call will be open until July 27, 2015. Proposals must be submitted through the NEXSO platform’s online form. The winners will be announced on September 16, and the list will be published on the Civil Society website and the NEXSO platform.

The three winning organizations will receive the support of the Vice Presidency for Countries to present their solution to an audience representing 26 countries in the region and specialists during the IDB Group-Civil Society Regional Forum to be held in Honduras in October 2015, as well as promotion and visibility in the NEXSO platform.
