Modernizing and strengthening secure identity chains and documental security (GESTDOC)

The project action aims to improve migration management governance and conflict prevention through reinforced and secure identity chains, contributing to increased security levels, including at regional level and a stronger social contract with the targeted populations.

The intervention logic will work around three main result areas: i) secure identity chains, including the issuing of civil identification and travel documents are strengthened, ii) border security control is improved, iii) interregional and regional cooperation are promoted.

Therefore, these will be supported by a technical cooperation framework, based on up-to-date and up-to-standard analytics, technical assistance, training programmes, institutional capacity building, legislation, equipment and secure data management. This approach is expected to build mutual trust and trigger regular collaboration and exchange relying on evidence-based information.

The specific objective of the project is to upgrade and strengthen civil document issuance and life-cycle management system with increased security levels and law enforcement capabilities including on border management and migration-related issues.
