This publication serves as a report of the 'Regional Expert Roundtable on Good Practices for the Identification, Prevention and Reduction of Statelessness and the Protection of Stateless Persons in South East Asia', organized in Bangkok on 28 to 29 October 2010. It provides an insight into some of the region’s good practices, which are included from each of the four pillars of response: the identification, prevention and reduction of statelessness and the protection of stateless persons.
An effective Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) system helps secure a person’s legal identity, tracks the major events of an individual’s life such as; birth, adoption, marriage, divorce, death, and cause of death, and is essential for planning, measuring and monitoring progress of development. In the past few years, several initiatives have been underway to harness the potential of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to strengthen CRVS.
Do you want to know how many countries in Asia and the Pacific have a CRVS coordination mechanism? Are you interested in how ambitious the national targets are for the CRVS Decade? Do you know when countries in Asia and the Pacific aim to be able to produce annual vital statistics reports?
Cambodia's country presentation made at the 1st Regional Steering Group for Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Meeting, Bangkok, 28-30 July 2015
The National Strategic Plan aims to achieve a long-term vision for Cambodia — that every person has a legal identity. This will require building a modern, permanent, universal civil registration system (CRVS) that will generate reliable vital statistics and an integrated population identification system (IPIS). Building these systems will eliminate the necessity to develop parallel systems for population identification, thus ensuring the efficient use of resources. Cambodia is currently looking to revise their legislation related to CRVS and would welcome advice on this matter.
This publication presents the findings of an Asian Dvelopment Bank multi-country study on legal identity. Based on extensive field research conducted in Bangladesh, Cambodia, and Nepal, the study assesses the potential and actual value of legal identity, given the realities of the developing country context.
This comprehensive assessment reviewed the main aspects of Cambodia's Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) system using the WHO guidance tool. These include the legal and regulatory framework; registration, certification and coding practices; and the compilation, tabulation and use of the resulting data. The focus throughout the assessment was on births, deaths and causes of death, because these are fundamental to guide public health programes, monitor population dynamics and measure key health indicators.
The seventy-first session of the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific adopted resolution 71/14 on the Asian and Pacific Civil Registration and Vital Statistics Decade, 2015-2024
Cambodia issued this statement in the Ministerial Conference agenda item 6 regarding the State of civil registration and vital statistics in Asia and the Pacific and overview of supporting initiatives (E/ESCAP/MCCRVS/2). Under this agenda item, ministers and heads of delegations were invited to deliver short statements to highlight policy priorities and Challenges for the “CRVS Decade, 2015-2024”, as well as their expectations and goals in regards to the regional collaboration to improve civil registration and vital statistics.
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).
This publication serves as a report of an Expert Roundtable that was held in Bangkok on the 28th and 29th of October 2010 to discuss initiatives in South East Asia in the field of statelessness and provides an insight into some of the region’s good practices. In accordance with the agenda of the meeting itself, good practice examples are included from each of the four pillars of response: the identification, prevention and reduction of statelessness and the protection of stateless persons.
