In January 2021, in accordance with its digital transformation strategy, UNJSPF deployed a solution based on blockchain and biometrics to transform a legacy process with a global reach (84K beneficiaries located in more than 192 countries). The solution offered an alternative to paper-based processes
UNJSPF beneficiaries are required to sign and submit a ‘Certificate of Entitlement,’ or ‘CE,’ every year as a “proof of existence” and proof of country of residence, to continue receiving their benefits.
With this ‘Digital CE solution,’ UNJSPF aimed to create, verify and secure the digital identities of beneficiaries – while also preventing fraud – using biometrics; identifying their locations with geo-location technology; and storing transactions on an immutable, traceable and independently auditable ledger, using the Hyperledger Indy platform.
The Digital CE solution addressed both technical and business audiences, focusing on innovation and technology for social good.
