ID Systems and SOGI Inclusive Design
The World Bank Group’s report on ID Systems and SOGI Inclusive Design offers guidance on creating identification systems that are inclusive of anyone’s sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). Under the Sustainable Development Goals, identification systems must be universally available in a way that is free from discrimination. This report explores key issues and emerging good practice that reduces discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
The report covers:
- What data to collect (gender or sex) based on the purpose of the ID system
- How that data are coded in the system
- How to collect, validate, or enable changes to this information for maximum inclusion and to ensure
- Whether to include gender or sex markers on ID credentials
