About the Mission Billion Challenge

On May 27th, the World Bank Group launched the second Mission Billion Challenge powered by MIT Solve, in partnership with the Identification for Development (ID4D) Initiative and the West Africa Unique Identification for Regional Integration and Inclusion (WURI) program.

The Mission Billion Challenge offers $150,000 in cash prizes for solutions that make identification systems and social protection programs more accessible and responsive to the needs of vulnerable groups, such as informal workers, particularly at a time when countries seek to leverage digital technologies and platforms to deliver services to persons affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • Global Prize: for solutions that ensure inclusive ID systems for vulnerable groups, particularly during physical distancing requirements.
  • WURI West Africa Prize: for solutions that allow informal sector workers in West Africa to more easily participate in social insurance programs, such as pensions and savings accounts.
