Since there are so many institutions involved in and benefiting from CRVS, effective coordination is a prerequisite for universal and responsive CRVS systems. Coordination must take place among all relevant responsible stakeholders in countries at all levels of government, among development partners and between Governments and development partners.
- Establishing a representative and functioning multisectoral mechanism responsible for CRVS coordination, such as a national committee or board;
- Assigning the national CRVS coordination mechanism with the task of overseeing the implementation of a comprehensive multisectoral national CRVS strategy and liaising with development partners;
- Ensuring linkages between CRVS improvement efforts and relevant national development plans.
