Tiny sm7mnohdvhc9au9gxu12drljhcof3ieq5w m9bqw2fa

As a means of addressing growing geopolitical uncertainty and increasing threats of physical and digital terrorism, public and private sector leaders are co-developing a global, interoperable Known Traveller Digital Identity infrastructure, which leverages Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies to enable government and industry leaders to achieve secure and seamless international travel.
The project brings together a community of travel security experts, policymakers, businesses and international organisations through digital interactions, workshops, conferences and other events to: 

  1. Demonstrate how 4IR technologies (biometrics, AI, predictive analytics, blockchain) can be used as levers to:

    • drive government policy/process re-design in border security

    • build greater trust and cooperation between border security agencies across geographies

  2. ​Influence government policies towards individualised risk-based travel security which will:

    • enable pre-screening and facilitation of compliant known travellers across borders

    • direct more resources to unknown/higher risk travellers

    • lower the chance of stereotyping and biases in border management

  3. Contribute to the development of standards and recommended practices through the International Civil Aviation Organization (and other industry bodies such as World Travel and Tourism Council and World Customs Organization) to mobilise process re-design across member states.

  4. Create a network of pilot projects to demonstrate best practices and identify mechanisms for achieving scale
