The 2020 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.
