CABEI makes final disbursement to complete delivery of new National Identification Document to 5.2 million Hondurans
IDENTIFÍCATE Project modernizes the National Identification System of Honduras.
Tegucigalpa, November 22, 2021.- This Monday, the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) made the last disbursement of US$3.8 million for Tranche C of the Identification Document Modernization Project in Honduras (IDENTIFÍCATE) as part of the US$73 million approved for this initiative, which benefits 5.5 million Hondurans enrolled and 5.2 million with the new National Identification Document (DNI).
"As CABEI, we are pleased that Hondurans now have a modern national identification document (DNI) that will enable them to carry out procedures and secure electronic transactions, as well as access to social programs and public services. This process is a major step towards Honduras' digital transformation and economic, social and democratic development," said CABEI Executive President, Dr. Dante Mossi.
Mossi also highlighted the interoperability benefits of the new database, allowing the streamlining of procedures and services, as well as greater transparency and access to information.
With this last disbursement, the National Registry of Personnel (RNP) will conclude the activities of delivery of ID cards, as well as leaving the infrastructure and processes so that the RNP itself can continue to meet the permanent needs of enrollment, printing, and delivery of ID cards to citizens.
The National Identification System of Honduras has universal registry coverage for citizens from birth to death, and a unique, secure, stable, and updated identity, based on a governmental interoperability platform, with the use of technological standards ensuring data privacy and citizens' rights.
The most significant achievements of the IDENTIFICATE project were presented by the authorities of the National Registry of Persons at an event today, which was attended by representatives of the European Union (EU), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and CABEI's Chief Officer for Honduras, Andrea Kafati.
