Haiti: Improving civil and ID registries after an earthquake

In January 2010, a massive earthquake struck Haiti. In order to help the rebuilding process and improve the existing public service infrastructure, fresh information about the characteristics of the population became utterly necessary.

In November 2012, the Government of Haiti and Smartmatic partnered to modernize Haiti's Civil Registry and Identity System.

This project, conceived as a knowledge and technology transfer program, endowed Haiti not only with state-of-the-art technology, but also with all the required know-how to continue developing its civil registry and identity system.
