This material was presented at the Ministerial Conference on Civil Registration and Vital Statistics 24 – 28 November 2014 by UN ESCAP
Through Commission resolution 69/15, countries in Asia and the Pacific requested that further regional action be taken to support the improvement of civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) systems. The regional action framework responds to that request as a catalyst for Governments and development partners to focus and accelerate their efforts to realize a shared vision and the three CRVS goals outlined in this document during the proposed civil registration and vital statistics decade for Asia and the Pacific (2015 to 2024).
The workshop was jointly hosted by the UNSD and ESCAP in Istanbul, Turkey from 15 to 18 September.
By 2024, the Civil Registrars across the Pacific will work together in ways that are flexible to local needs, with a shared approach to legislative change, enabling technology and data exchange
- Outcome of the Regional Preparatory Meeting: Governments agree on steps to 'Get Every One in the Picture'
In recent years, the Government of Pakistan has demonstrated increased commitment to social sector development, consequently leading to some notable successes. In particular, the country is celebrating the recent achievement of the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) for sanitation, halving the proportion of the population without sustainable access to basic sanitation. Over the past two decades, the government has also made notable strides in combatting polio, increasing routine immunization and decreasing the number of out-ofschool children.
The workshop for National CRVS Focal Points was held from 9 to 10 December 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand.
The Plan was expected to serve as a guiding tool for countries, regional and international organizations, in managing interventions and monitoring achievements in CRVS systems in Africa from 2010-2015. This regional medium-term plan (MTP) is designed to address areas that need critical reform measures to ensure improved results across all member States.
This guideline deals with improving Civil Registration Systems and would supplement the UN manuals on the subject. Thus, this guideline is intended to assist national governments in general and CRVS organizations in particular for preparing national strategies and action plans for improving CRVS systems.
As part of the reporting structure of the Regional Action Framework on Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) in Asia and the Pacific, by the end of 2015, members and associate members are required to submit a baseline report to the ESCAP Secretariat through their designated national focal point. The present document is intended to facilitate the compilation of national data and inputs for this baseline report.
