Digital Pathfinder Countries: Serbia and Sri Lanka


The Digital Expedition is a pioneering initiative launched by the Serbian Prime Minister and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme.

This programme promotes digital literacy across all age groups, from digitally savvy Generation Z to their parents and elderly citizens. By addressing the digital divide, it aims to ensure that everyone, especially those with limited access to digital resources, can navigate the digital world confidently and securely.

The joint programme aims to transform civil registration processes across select urban, rural, and estate sectors by fully digitalizing and streamlining these processes, halving registration times and benefiting 1,270,000 individuals. A key feature will be the creation of an interoperable Civil Registration and Vital Statistics database, linked with three major government entities to generate real-time vital statistics reports. 

Additionally, the programme will equip the target population with the knowledge, access, and skills needed to utilize digital civil registration services.  This will empower citizens to access public services more productively and effectively.
