The UN Refugee Agency has begun deploying a Biometrics Identity Management System (BIMS) after a successful pilot. The goal is to enable displaced travelers to move between camps without having to be enrolled at each new stop. The system is global and will eventually allow biometric information to be communicated between camps. The agency’s Sam Jefferies and Jim Ragle are on the front lines of deploying the biometric system. They spoke with Regarding ID’s Gina Jordan about the roll out and what it means to the refugees who need their help.
